The only protection that can possibly work against the lure of power like Voldemorts! In spite of all the temptation you have endured, all the suffering, you remain pure of heart, just as pure as you were at the age of eleven, when you stared into a mirror that reflected your hearts desire, and it showed you only the way to thwart Lord Voldemort, and not immortality or riches." —Albus Dumbledore and Harry Potter.[src]Harry James Potter (b. 31 July 1980) is a half-blood wizard, the only child and son of JamesPotter and Lily Potter (née Evans), and one of the most famous wizards of modern times. In anattempt to circumvent a prophecy that a boy born at the end of July 1980 would be able to defeathim, Lord Voldemort tried to murder him when he was a toddler, and did murder Harrys parents whenthey tried to protect him. This early attempt to vanquish Harry led to Voldemorts first defeat and the endof the FirstWizarding War. One consequence of Lilys protection is that her orphaned son had to beraised by her only remaining blood relative, in her Muggle sisterPetunia Dursleys family, where hewas not welcomed or nurtured, but would stay alive, at least until he was 17. As the only known survivorof the Killing Curse, Harry was already famous before he arrived at Hogwarts.At the age of eleven, Harry learned from Rubeus Hagrid, the Hogwarts gamekeeper, that he wasa wizard. He began attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was sortedintoGryffindor house. While at school, Harry became best friends withRon Weasley and HermioneGranger. He became the youngestSeeker in over a century and eventually captain of hishousesQuidditch team, winning two Quidditch Cups as part of the team.He became even betterknown in his early years for protecting thePhilosophers Stone from Voldemort and saving GinnyWeasley from the Chamber of Secrets. In his fourth year, Harry won the TriwizardTournament, although the competition ended in tragedy with the death of Cedric Diggory andthe return of Lord Voldemort. The next school year, Harry reluctantly founded DumbledoresArmy and fought in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, during which he losthisgodfather, who was a father figure to him.Harry played a significant role in many other battles of the Second Wizarding War and hunted downand destroyed VoldemortsHorcruxes with Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley. DuringtheBattle of Hogwarts, he personally witnessed the deaths of Severus Snape and Fred
Weasley, and learned that Remus Lupin,Nymphadora Tonks, Colin Creevey, and many othershad fallen as well. He encountered Voldemort and sacrificed himself, knowing that that was the only wayto destroy the piece of Voldemorts soul that was inside him. In Harrys near-death experience afterVoldemort cursed him in the forest clearing, Albus Dumbledore gave Harry advice and backgroundinformation on Voldemort. Harry chose to live, and after he awoke, he duelled Voldemort one last time,and defeated him.After the war, Harry became an Auror and married his best friend Rons younger sister, GinnyWeasley, with whom he had three children: James Sirius, Albus Severus, and Lily Luna. Harrywas also named the godfather of Teddy Remus Lupin. He had felt the effects of the CruciatusCurse and the Imperius Curse several times. He was also hit by the Killing Curse twice, butsurvived. Harry is also notable for being the only known Master of Death, having united thethreeDeathly Hallows.Contents [show]Biography EditFamily lineage Edit "Now, yer mum an dad were as good a witch an wizard as I ever knew. Head Boy an Head Girl at Hogwarts in their day!" —Rubeus Hagrid talking about Harrys parents[src]The Potters were an old, very wealthy pure-blood family, and Harry inherited much of his wealthfrom his parents. The Potters descended from the Peverell family, an ancient wizarding line,through Ignotus Peverell, who passed an Invisibility cloak on to his descendants. TheGaunts,descendants of Salazar Slytherin, also descend from thePeverells, through Ignotusbrother Cadmus, who passed on theResurrection Stone as a family heirloom in a signet ring,making Harry and Tom Marvolo Riddle very distant relatives. Harry as a baby with his parents. Added by You-Know-Who
It is also probable that Harry was distantly related, on his fathers side, tothe Blacks, Malfoys, Weasleys, and the Longbottoms,and almost all other pure-bloodfamilies, making him distantly related to various other wizards and witches, including BellatrixLestrange,Sirius Black, Nymphadora Tonks, and even his own future wife Ginny Weasley,though the degree of consanguinity is not known.Harrys maternal relatives are the Muggle Evans and Dursley families.Childhood Edit "Maybe he thought he could persuade em... maybe he just wanted em outta the way. All anyone knows is, he turned up in the village where you was all living, on Halloween ten years ago. You was just a year old." —Rubeus Hagrid on Harrys parents deaths[src] Harry as a baby, faces death. Added by FairfieldfencerHarry James Potter was born on 31 July, 1980, to James and Lily Potter, members of thefirst Order of the Phoenix at the height of theFirst Wizarding War. From birth, he lived in hidingwith his parents after Lord Voldemort marked them for death. They lived in the village of GodricsHollow in a home put under the Fidelius Charm to keep them hidden. As part of the charm, they hadplanned to make their Secret-Keeper Sirius Black, but acting on his advice, they changed thisdesignation to Peter Pettigrew, as they thought he would be less suspicious. In a terrible turn of fate, ithappened that Pettigrew was a spy for Voldemort. He betrayed James and Lily Potter, faked his owndeath, and framed Sirius Black for everything.
Lily shields her baby fromVoldemort. Added by Pol 871At an unknown time, James and Lily held a Christening for Harry. It was quiet and quick, and onlyJames, Lily, Harry, and godfather Sirius were there. It is also known that for Harrys birthday Sirius boughtHarry a toy Broomstick. The Potters are also known to have owned a cat but it is not known whathappened to the cat after Lord Voldemorts attack.On the evening of 31 October, 1981, Lord Voldemort arrived atGodrics Hollow and ended thelives of Harrys parents; he started with James, who tried to stand up to him; unfortunately he did nothave his wand with him and was killed immediately. Voldemort then advanced on Lily Potter, who diedprotecting Harry. Her sacrificeprevented the Killing Curse from working. Her love for Harry became abarrier protecting her son; when Voldemort attempted the curse on the child, it backfired, and instead ofkilling Harry, Voldemort lost all his powers and his physical form was obliterated, but was saved fromdeath by his multiple Horcruxes. Harry became the only person known to have survived the KillingCurse. The failed curse left alightning bolt-shape scar on his forehead. The scar would be a baneand a blessing to Harry in the years to come, as it opened atelepathic link between LordVoldemort and himself. He became famous even at the age of one for defeating Lord Voldemort. "To Harry Potter — The Boy Who Lived." —Wizarding world toasting Harry Potter after Lord Voldemorts first downfall.[src] The Potter family home under attack.
Added by Patr0nusThe house at Godrics Hollow was destroyed in the fight, and Rubeus Hagrid rescued Harry fromthe ruined house. Hagrid was given specific orders to take him to his Aunt Petunia and UncleVernon, but Hagrid was intercepted by Sirius Black, who pleaded for Hagrid to give the baby to him.Hagrid refused, saying that he was under orders from Dumbledore to get Harry to Privet Drive asquickly as possible. Sirius, though reluctant, relented and gave Hagrid his flying motorcycle to take Harryto Privet Drive. Dumbledore left a letter explaining everything to the Dursleys, but they never relayed itto Harry. Instead, Harry spent the next decade of his life in their strict and miserable home.Life at Privet Drive Edit "Im not having one in the house, Petunia! Didnt we swear when we took him in wed stamp out that dangerous nonsense?" —Vernon refusing to accept that Harrys a wizard[src] Baby Harry left on the doorstep. Added by StarstuffLiving with the Dursleys, Harry thought, was the worst thing in the world. As they werea Muggle family, they had no understanding ofmagic, and even though his aunt and uncle knew abouthis lineage, they wanted nothing to do with it. The Dursleys considered themselves a "proper" family andhated anything out of the ordinary. They lied to Harry about his parents, claiming they had died in a carwreck and that James was an unemployed drunk. They resented Harry for his magical talents, whichwere sporadic, but evident. They would not even let Harry say the word "magic." They discouraged anysort of imagination insisting upon "stamping that rubbish out" and screamed at or punished Harrywhenever something "unusual" occurred. In his youth, Harry could make strange things happen withoutunderstanding why (as no one had bothered to tell him that he was a wizard). For instance, after hisaunt Petunia sheared off all his messy hair in fury that it would not lay flat, it grew back to its untouchedstate by the next morning. Harry was punished, even though he had not done anything on purpose.Another time, Dedalus Diggle bowed to him in a shop, and his Aunt Petunia ferociously interrogatedHarry as to how he knew the man before leaving the shop very quickly.
Harrys bedroom beneath the staircase. Added by MargiechocoholicThe Dursleys spoiled and pampered their son Dudley and paid almost no attention to Harry. All hisclothes were ill-fitting hand-me-downs from Dudley, far too large for Harry. He was forced to sleep inthe cupboard under the stairs, while his cousin got two bedrooms to himself. They ordered Harryaround like a slave. In time, Dudley became a terrible bully of Harry. The Dursleys took Dudley and afriend to spectacular places every year for his birthday, but they never threw Harry a party and gave himhorrible presents like a pair of Uncle Vernons old socks. Dursleys home. First, HarrysThere were two benefits to Harrys virtual imprisonment at theneighbour, Arabella Figg, was a Squib working undercover for the Order of the Phoenix to keeptabs on Harrys well-being; however, to maintain favour with the Dursleys, she was forced to mistreat himwhenever they sent him to her. And second, by returning to live with his mothers only living bloodrelative, the protection that Lily gave Harry would live on. While Harry could call that place home, therehe could not be harmed. However, this charm would be broken when Harry turned 17 years old, or whenhe no longer called 4 Privet Drive his home. Harry playing with his toy soldiers inthe Cupboard under the stairs. Added by Firefox1095On Dudleys eleventh birthday, the Dursleys went to Zoo with Dudleys best friend Piers Polkiss.Unfortunately for the Dursleys they had to take Harry with them, as Yvonne, Petunias best friend, was
on holiday at Majorca, and Mrs. Figgbroke her leg. At the Zoo, Harry accidentally made the glass intoa boa enclosure disappear.Muggle primary school Edit "At school, Harry had no one. Everybody knew that Dudleys gang hated that odd Harry Potter in his baggy old clothes and broken glasses, and nobody liked to disagree with Dudleys gang." —The reason Harry had no friends at school[src]Harry attended a normal Muggle school along with Dudley. He did not have any friends, since all thestudents were afraid of Dudleys gang. It is told that he was good at sports, even though he was thelast picked for a team; this was more because no one wanted to admit to Dudley that they liked him,rather than because he was no good. Harry got decent, if not good, grades at school. Harry onceaccidentally turned his teachers wig blue, and once somehow found himself on the school kitchenroof, when escaping from Dudleys gang.If Harry had not gone to Hogwarts, he would have attended Stonewall High, a Muggle state school.Harrys discovery of being a wizard Edit "Yer a wizard, Harry, and a thumpin good one Id wager, once yer trained up a bit, o course." —Rubeus Hagrid upon meeting Harry for the first time[src] Harry finally receives his Hogwarts acceptanceletter. Added by Patr0nusHarry had no birthday celebrations until the day he turned eleven, which was the same day that he identity . The week of Harrys birthday, hundreds of lettersdiscovered the exceptional reality about hisbegan arriving at the Dursleys home, addressed to him from a place called Hogwarts School ofWitchcraft and Wizardry. When the Dursleys saw the first letter was addressed as "cupboard underthe stairs," they panicked at the thought of Harrys ill treatment being observed and transferred himto Dudleys second bedroom, which soon appeared on letters as the "smallest bedroom." WhenHarrys Uncle Vernon first read the letter, he turned a pale, porridge grey out of fear that wizards weretrying to contact Harry. Because of this, Vernon Dursley tried to destroy the letters in a futile attempt tokeep Harry from his destiny. As the letters kept coming in increasingly larger quantities, the Dursleys sawno alternative but to flee from them. The owls carrying the letters followed them wherever they went. In a
final desperate move, the Dursleysrelocated themselves to a shack on a rocky island in the edge ofthe sea. Hagrids birthday cake to Harry. Added by StarstuffAt midnight on Harrys birthday, Rubeus Hagrid appeared in person to find out why Harry had notreceived his letter. He was infuriated by the Dursleys and explained to Harry, in spite ofVernonsobstinate protests, that he was a wizard, how his parents died, and that he was to be sent to HogwartsSchool of Witchcraft and Wizardry. "Thats why youre famous, Harry. Thats why everyone knows your name. Youre the boy who lived." —Hagrid on why Harry is famous.[src]This would be Harrys first birthday celebration, and Hagrid gave him a small home made birthday cakeand an owl, whom Harry named Hedwig. Hagrid took Harry to the Leaky Cauldron, where helearned that he was famous. He met Quirinus Quirrell, his soon-to-be Defence Against the DarkArts teacher at Hogwarts, the Inn-keeper, Tom, a witch named Doris Crockford, and DedalusDiggle, the man who had bowed to Harry several years earlier. Hagrid then took Harry to DiagonAlley, where he learned more about his fame in the Wizarding world and that his parents had left hima small fortune in a vault at Gringotts. Harry makes a connection with his wand. Added by You-Know-Who "I remember every wand Ive every sold, Mr. Potter. It so happens thatthe phoenix whose tail feather resides in your wand gave another feather. Just one other. It is curious that you should be destined for this wand...when its brother gave you that scar." —Garrick Ollivander explaining to Harry about his unique wand.[src]
Harry bought his first wand from the wandmaker Garrick Ollivander that day. His wand was eleveninches long and made of holly. The phoenix feather at the core came from Dumbledoresphoenix Fawkes. It was crafted by Garrick Ollivander, who had also created a twin wand. This wandhad been made from yew, and contained the only other feather supplied by Fawkes . This twinwand had long ago chosen Tom Marvolo Riddle as its wielder. Riddle, under the alias of LordVoldemort, ended up using this wand to attack Harry and his parents . The two wands , sharing thesame phoenix origin, had a unique connection which would prevent them fromsuccessfully duelling against each other.Education at Hogwarts EditFirst year Edit Harry shows off his scar to Ron on the train. Added by You-Know-Who Dumbledore: "Harry, do you know why Professor Quirrell couldnt bear to have you touch him? It was because of your mother. She sacrificed herself for you. And that kind of act leaves a mark... This kind of mark cannot be seen. It lives in your very skin." Harry: "What is it?" Dumbledore: "Love, Harry. Love." — Albus Dumbledore to Harry[src] Harrys scar hurts during the sorting ceremony when he makes eye contactwithSeverus Snape. Added by Rangerkid51Harry Potter was further guided by destiny when he met his lifelong best friends RonWeasley and Hermione Granger while riding the Hogwarts Express. The Sorting Hat took awhile to decide where to place Harry. It considered putting Harry into Slytherin, but changed its mind at
Harrys insistence, as he had heard about the Dark Wizards who had been in the house. All three wereSorted into Gryffindor House on their first evening at school. While Harry immediately took to Ron, hedid not immediately befriend Hermione, though he was nicer to her than Ron was. On Halloween,aMountain Troll was let into the school. The students were sent back to theirCommon Rooms, butHarry realised that Hermione did not know about the Troll, since she was in the bathroom crying as Ronhad made fun of her earlier in the day. Harry and Ron went to the girls bathroom and found the trollbearing down on Hermione. After Harry stuck his wand up its nose, Ron was able to knock the troll outwith its own club. Hermione lied to the professors when they came to investigate to keep Harry and Ronout of trouble. From that point on, the three were best friends. Harry with his magical companion Hedwig. Added by Andrew120 Professor McGonagall: "Potter, this is Oliver Wood. Wood — Ive found you a Seeker." Wood: "Are you serious, Professor?" Professor McGonagall: "Absolutely. The boys a natural. Ive never seen anything like it." — Professor McGonagall and Oliver Wood after seeing Harry fly[src] Harry caught theRemembrall of Neville Longbottom. Added by Shiruzuka2997Harry discovered at his firstbroomstick flying lesson that he was a natural flyer. When DracoMalfoy took Neville LongbottomsRemembrall, Harry retrieved it using his broom to fly up andcatch it. He was so good that he was able to join the Gryffindor Quidditch team, becoming the
youngest Seeker in a century, since first year students normally were not allowed to have theirown broomsticks. Before Harrys first Quidditch match, he received the new Nimbus 2000, a top ofthe line racing broom, from Professor McGonagall. During that Quidditch match,Harrys broom was jinxed, and he had no control. Harry playing Quidditch. Added by H.P.SnitchRon and Hermione saw Professor Severus Snape staring at Harry and mumbling anincantation. Hermione went to Snapes row and under his seat and cast LacarnumInflamarae causing the end of his robes to catch on fire. As soon as Snape stopped making eye contactwith Harry, he regained control of his broom and zoomed toward the ground. On his way, he caughtthe snitch in his mouth, almost swallowing it, ending the match and leavingGryffindor victorious. It waslater revealed that Professor Quirrell was the one jinxing Harrys broom, and Snape was trying to performa counter-jinx, much to Harry, Ron, and Hermiones surprise. Meanwhile, Lord Voldemort, longpresumed dead, was secretly mounting a return using the new Professor ofDefence Against theDark Arts, Quirinus Quirrell, as a host body, he was able to search for the Philosophers Stone,which he believed would restore him to his body and grant him everlasting life. Voldemort was thwartedby Harry, with the help of Ron and Hermione. Harry, Ron and Hermione suffered a series ofexhausting and difficult challenges down in the Philosophers Stone chambers in an attempt to stopthePhilosophers Stone being stolen. Quirell andVoldemort in confrontation Added by El Profeta VespertinoThroughout the challenges the group was picked off and in the final task Harry was left on his own whenHermione was unable to pass through, this left Harry to face Voldemort alone.

The Writing on the Wall. Added by DumbledorefanSecond year Edit Ron: "Youre aParselmouth! Why didnt you tell us? ... Now the whole school is gonna think youre his great-great-great-grandson or something." Harry: "But Im not! I cant be." Hermione: "He lived a thousand years ago. For all we know, you could be." — Harry finds out hes a Parselmouth[src] Harry in his second year, during the first meeting of GilderoyLockharts Duelling Club. Added by Rangerkid51Harrys second year started out badly, and gradually got worse. Throughout the preceding summer, Harryhad not been in contact with any of his friends, had heard no news from the wizarding world, and hadbeen mistreated by his family, as usual. The evening of his twelfth birthday, Harry learned that the reasonhis friends had not been in contact with him was that a house-elf named Dobby had been stoppingletters from coming to Harry. When Harry questioned Dobby as to why, Dobby told him that Harry Pottermust not return to Hogwarts. Harry refused, saying the wizarding world was where he belonged, andDobby set out to cause him trouble. During a business meeting betweenVernon and Mr. Mason, whobrought his wife with him, Dobby used his powers to ruin the party, and then shortly afterwardsdisappeared, framing Harry for the chaos. Dobbys act of magic caused Harry to receive a warning fromthe Ministry of Magic and to be imprisoned in his room by the Dursleys. Despite their efforts, Harrywas rescued by Ron and his brothers, Fred and George. Harry had packed his bags and loaded theWeasleys flying car. Harry and the brothers arrived at the Burrow in the early hours of the morning,
hoping not to be noticed. However, they were, and Mrs. Weasley was furious. Harry with Fawkes. Added by DumbledorefanDobbys first attempt at stopping Harry from returning had failed, so he continued trying. When Harry andthe Weasleys arrived at Kings Cross Station, Dobby sealed the entrance to Platform Nine andThree-Quarters early and stopped Harry and Ron from passing through the wall to get on theHogwarts Express. However, this did not stop Harry from returning to Hogwarts, he and Ron used theWeasleys Flying Ford Anglia to follow the train to Hogwarts. They arrived later than they had hoped,but all in one piece; until Ron accidentally drove the flying car into the Whomping Willow and broke hiswand.However, Harrys year at Hogwarts was not going to get any better. Throughout the year, the newDefence Against the Dark Arts teacher, Gilderoy Lockhart, humiliated Harry repeatedly by draggingHarry into the spotlight against Harrys will. During a duelling class led by Lockhart, Harry revealedhimself to his fellow students and members of staff to be a Parselmouth, an uncommon skill that isnormally associated with dark wizards. This brought on a great deal of trouble for Harry, sincethe Chamber of Secrets had been re-opened, and it was the "Heir of Slytherin" who was deemedresponsible. Once the chamber had been unsealed, there were various attacks on Muggle-bornpupils,including Harrys best friend Hermione Granger. These attacks were believed to have been carried out by Draco Malfoy was responsible. Inthe heir, who many believed to be Harry, but Harry believed thatorder to prove their hypothesis, Hermione cooked up a Polyjuice Potion that Harry and Ron used tochange to look like Crabbe and Goyle, so they could try to get information from Malfoy. They learned thatMalfoy was not the heir and that he had no idea who the attacker was. Hermione, however, did not jointhe boys in this adventure as she had accidentally used a cat hair in her potion, causing her to spendweeks in the hospital wing. Prior to Valentines Day, Harry discovered a diary, and while writing in it,Harry learned that the Chamber had been opened fifty years ago and that Hagrid had been accused ofthe crime.By this time, Hermione had a different theory. She believed that the monster responsible for these attackswas abasilisk and conducted research into her theory. The morning Hermione was attacked, sheand Penelope Clearwater had been using a mirror to look around corners for any attacking predator.Hermione had done enough research to figure that the Basilisk had been moving around the school usingthe pipe system and scribbled her theory down on a scrap piece of paper torn out of a book. She wasattacked the same day, and her paralysed body was taken to the schools hospital wing.
Still believing that if Hagrid were not responsible, he could at least point them in the right direction, Harryand Ron visited him after the attack on Hermione. From under the Cloak of Invisibility, they witnessedhis arrest by Minister for Magic Cornelius Fudge and the suspension of Dumbledore. As Hagridwas being led away, he gave the pair a new clue. He told them to follow the spiders. Harry and Ronheeded this advice, even though Ron was deathly afraid of spiders. They met Aragog who told them thatHagrid was not responsible for opening the Chamber the first time and that the girl who died was killed ina bathroom, leading Harry to theorise that Moaning Myrtle was the victim. A few days later, Harry andRon discovered the scrap of paper in Hermiones hand. Harry and Ron wondered how a big Basiliskwould go around the school undetected, and then they saw the word "pipes."Harry (and later Ron) would soon learn that the person responsible for opening the Chamber was in factRons younger sister Ginny Weasley, under the control of a memory of Lord Voldemort by writinginto his diary, forcing her to torment and vandalise the school. They also learned that she was being keptdown in the Chamber and were told that her "skeleton would lie in the Chamber forever." Determined torescue Ginny and hopefully catch the Heir and destroy the Basilisk, Harry, accompanied by Ron andLockhart, was able to locate and open the Chamber using his Parseltongue abilities. Once they got downinto the Chamber, it was not long before the cowardly Lockhart attempted to erase Harry and Ronsmemories using Rons broken wand; however, his spell backfired, and he erased his own memory.The Chamber roof caved in, separating Harry from Ron and Lockhart.Separated from Ron and a now deluded Lockhart, Harry ventured on alone. Harry soon found Ginnysunconscious body lying on the floor of the Chamber. As he hoped she was not dead, he was greeted byTom Riddle, who had come to a simulation of life from the memories stored in the diary. Revealing hishistory and true nature, Riddle set the basilisk upon him. Harry defeated the Basilisk with the helpof Fawkes, Dumbledores phoenix, and Godric Gryffindors Sword. However, Harry was bitten bythe Basilisk. Fawkes flew over to Harry and wept upon his wound. As Phoenix tears have healing powers,Harry survived. Harry then stabbed the diary with the Basilisk fang to rid himself of Riddle, not knowingthat he had just destroyed one of Voldemorts Horcruxes. Once the emergency was over, Fawkes flewHarry, Ginny, Ron, and Lockhart to safety. Harry spoke with Dumbledore on the events that took place,and explained to him that Ginny was not to blame and that Lockhart was a fraud. Harry and Ron bothreceived Awards for Special Services to the School and two-hundred points a piece for Gryffindor House. Harry examines the Sword of Gryffindor. Added by Rangerkid51After interpreting Dobbys strange actions in Dumbledores office, Harry realised Lucius Malfoy was theultimate culprit for opening the Chamber. Before term started, he had planted Tom Riddles diary in
Ginnys cauldron in the hope of indirectly opening the Chamber of Secrets. At this time, he did not knowthe diary was one of Lord Voldemorts Horcruxes. Afterwards, Harry was able to trick Lucius into freeinghis mistreated house-elf, Dobby, who had been attempting to protect Harry all year, by giving him oneof his socks. Malfoy was subsequently sacked as a school governor.Third year Edit Harry, Ron and Hermione in theShrieking Shack. Added by Will k "He was their friend...and he betrayed them. HE WAS THEIR FRIEND! I hope he finds me, because when he does, Im going to be ready! When does, IM GOING TO KILL HIM!" —Harry, still believing Sirius Black to be the man who betrayed his parents, learns that Black is also his godfather.[src]In the summer of 1993, SiriusBlack—who had been wrongly imprisoned twelve years earlier forallegedly betraying James and Lily Potter to Voldemort and killing twelve Muggles—escaped from Azkaban. This created a tense climate in the wizarding world, and many believedthat killing Harry was the object of Blacks escape. As such, he was treated leniently when, late in thesummer, he inadvertently inflated his "Aunt"Marge, possibly with an Engorgement Charm. Thatevening he ran away from the Dursleys, and after an enlightening journey aboard the Knight Bus, hearrived at the Leaky Cauldron, whereMinister for Magic Cornelius Fudge was awaiting him.After spending two happy weeks at the Leaky Cauldron, Harry met up with hisfriends Ron and Hermione along with the entire Weasley family, who had just returned from aholiday in Egypt. That night, Harry overheard Mr. and Mrs. Weasley arguing and learned of theMinistrys fears that Harry was the target of Sirius Black.Prior to their departure aboard the Hogwarts Express, Mr. Weasley pulled Harry aside and in nouncertain terms told Harry not to go looking for Black. Finding only one open compartment, Harry and his Remus Lupin. The train suddenly stopped well before itfriends shared their ride with a new professor,should have and was searched byDementors looking for Black. Harry reacted poorly to the appearanceof the dementors, passing out, and beginning a pattern that would last most of the year. The followingday, Harry and his classmates began their new classes. Among the first wasCare of MagicalCreatures in which, Hagrid, the new professor, taught them about hippogriffs. Unfortunately, DracoMalfoy had not been listening when Hagrid lectured and was injured by the hippogriff, Buckbeak. InHarrys other new class, Divination, the professor, Sybill Trelawney made a habit of predicting
Harrys demise. On the other hand, Professor Lupin soon proved to be an excellent teacher in DefenceAgainst the Dark Arts, where he taught the students how to combat various dark creatures. Harry approaches theBuckbeak the hippogriff. Added by Rangerkid51At Halloween, the third year students went on their first visit to Hogsmeadevillage. Harry was notallowed to go, as he had not had his permission form signed. In light of Harrys difficulties, Ron andHermione, who had been fighting over Hermiones new cat, Crookshanks, put aside their differences.While his friends were enjoying themselves in Hogsmeade, Harry visited with Professor Lupin. A fewweeks later, Harry played in the first Quidditch match of the year versus Hufflepuff. In the pouring rainand storms, the teams played until theDementors invaded the field. In their presence, Harry tumbled offhis broom fifty feet to the ground. His Nimbus 2000 was destroyed in the process. Knowingthat Gryffindor would not win the Quidditch Cup, if he continued to collapse in the presence of thedementors, Harry asked Lupin to help teach him how to combat them.Hogsmeade in Christmas. Added by ADR1Just before Christmas, the school had another Hogsmeade visit. This time Harry sneaked out of thecastle using the Marauders Map, which the Weasley twins presented to him in his time of need.During his illicit visit to Hogsmeade, Harry overheard a conversation between Minister forMagicCornelius Fudge and several of the Hogwarts teachers. Fudge told them that Black hadbetrayed the Potters and that he was still Harrys godfather. This revelation caused Harry great distress.To relieve Harry of some of his troubles the trio went to visit Hagrid, where they learned that Buckbeakwas to be put on trial, and they promised to help his defence. Soon after, on Christmas day, Harryreceived a Firebolt from an anonymous benefactor. Believing it to be from Sirius Black, Hermionereported it to Professor McGonagall, causing Harry and Ron to stop talking to her.

Soon after, Harry was given his Firebolt back byProfessor McGonagall, and Harry decided it was high time to patch things up with Hermione. However,that same evening, Rons rat, Scabbers, disappeared, and Crookshanks was blamed. The boys did notreconcile with her until after the next Hogsmeade visit, when Harry was almost caught. After receiving astern talking to for sneaking out of the school, Harry and Ron emerged from Professor Lupins office tofind Hermione standing there looking distraught. She told them thatLucius Malfoy had used hisinfluence and Buckbeak had been convicted and sentenced to execution.The Quidditch final was soon upon them, and Harry played in the dirtiest game of his career. He managedto catch the Golden Snitch after Gryffindor was sufficiently ahead, and Gryffindor won the QuidditchCup. They could not celebrate for long as finals were right around the corner. Harry did well enough in thetests, and following his last final in Divination, Professor Trelawney went into a trance and predicted thatthe servant would return to Lord Voldemort and help him return to power. The same day, Buckbeaksappeal had taken place in the castle, where the hippogriff was, again, sentenced to death. Against theadvice of Hagrid, the trio went down to his cabin to comfort him. While there, Scabbers resurfaced. Whenhe discovered that the Ministry officials were on their way, Hagrid rushed Harry, Ron, and Hermione outthe back. While they made their way back to the castle, the sound of a swishing blade rent the air, andBuckbeak was apparently executed. Harry and Hermione use theTime-Turner. Added by Rangerkid51Immediately afterwards, Scabbers bit Ron and attempted to escape, causing Ron to chase the rat into theshadow of the Whomping Willow. Once there, he was attacked by a large black dog who dragged Ronand Scabbers into a tunnel under the Willow. Harry and Hermione followed them into the tunnel, whichled them to the Shrieking Shack. There, they followed the sound of Ron and discovered him in an
upstairs bedroom, where they were ambushed bySirius Black, who was a Animagus that turned intoa dog. They were saved byProfessor Lupin, but then the situation turned on its head when heembraced Black like a brother, and they began talking about the long dead Peter Pettigrew. Whenasked to explain, they revealed that Lupin, Black, and Pettigrew went to Hogwarts with Harrysfather, James, that they had all become amimagi to help Lupin with his Lycanthropy, and that in factPeter Pettigrew betrayed the Potters. This was proven when Black and Lupin forced Scabbers to becomePettigrew. After questioning he confessed, but Harry prevented Black and Lupin from killing him. Harry casting The Patronus Charm. Added by Big S94Determined to turn Pettigrew over, the whole group set off for the castle. Along the way, the moon cameout from behind the clouds, and Lupin transformed into a werewolf, since he had not drunkhisWolfsbane Potion. Seeing the danger, Black used his Animagus powers to protect Harry and hisfriends, but was badly injured. When Harry and Hermione went to look for him, hundredsofDementors fell upon them, trying to perform the Dementors Kissboth on Sirius and him. Siriusquickly passed out, as Harry tried casting Expecto Patronum(using the thought that he would leave theDursleys and move with Sirius to try and conjure it) and tried to make Hermione think of something happyand cast it as well, but neither could do it. The Dementors were quickly descending on, and as Harryfinally conjured a fog Patronus, Hermione passed out leaving Harry to fight the Dementors alone. Aftertrying to hold them off, Harry was quickly overwhelmed. The dementors descended on him, Sirius, andHermione. Then one Dementor grabbed Harry by the throat and attempted to perform the kiss on him.Harry then heard his mother screaming in his ears, thinking that she would be the last thing he ever heardwhen a mysterious figure on the other side of the lake cast a powerful Patronus sending away all of theDementors saving Harry, Sirius, and Hermione. Harry then began to think the mysterious strangerwas his father when he passed out. Later Harry and Hermione awoke to find themselves in the infirmaryand that Sirius was about to be subjected to the Dementors Kiss. They pleaded with Dumbledore whoinstructed them that nothing could be done without more time. With this clue, Hermione grabbed Harryand used her Time-Turner to send them back in time. Once there, they hid out until the time was right
to rescue Buckbeak, who they saved just prior to his execution. Afterwards, they waited for theappropriate moment to save Sirius. While they sat in the woods, Harry tried to tell Hermione that hethought that his father might have saved them. When she reminded him that his father was dead, Harrydropped the subject. They ran for safety to Hagrids hut when the werewolf Lupin was on the loose, andHarry, desperate to see who saved him, left to observe the situation. Harry arrived at the lake watchingthe dementors attack his past self as he watched, until in a flash of clarity, Harry realised that he castthe Patronus Charm that saved his life and stepping forward, Harry cast the Patronus and produced afully fledged stag Patronus that drove all of the dementors back saving his past self, Hermione, andSirius. Once reunited with Hermione the pair rode Buckbeak to Siriuss window and rescued him.Harry returned to the Dursleys feeling as if he had accomplished nothing, but his trip and future atHogwarts was brightened when he received a letter from Sirius. Inside there was permission for him to goto Hogsmeade, and Harry was delighted to have a godfather. Sirius also told him that it was indeed himthat gave him the FireboltFourth year Edit "You have shown bravery beyond anything I could have expected of you." —Dumbledore to Harry at the end of his fourth year[src]In 1994, Harry, the Weasley family (except Mrs. Weasley), and Hermione attendedthe Quidditch World Cup. AtStoatshead Hill, Cedric Diggory and his father, Amos, joined them.Once at the camp grounds, they met Ludo Bagman, Barty Crouch Sr. and his house-elf Winky,and many other Hogwarts students and their families, including Seamus Finnigan, DeanThomas, Oliver Wood, and Draco Malfoy. They were able to see the match between the Irish andBulgarian national teams up close, because Harry, the Weasleys, and Hermione had seats in the top box,thanks to a favour Mr. Weasley had done for Ludo Bagman.The night after the match, while the Irish teams supporters were still celebrating, a group of black-cloaked, hooded figures held terrifying celebrations of their own by suspending the Muggle camp sitemanager and his family in air like twisted marionettes. On Mr. Weasleys orders, Harry fled into the woodsnear the camp site, along with Ron, Hermione, Fred, George, and Ginny. The group was separated in thewoods, and in the chaos, Harry believed he had lost his wand. The trio ran into Draco Malfoy, and heall but told them that his father was among the cloaked wizards. Later, Harry learned that Barty CrouchJr. had stolen his wand from his pocket. While in a clearing in the woods, Harry, Ron, and Hermioneheard someone shout the incantation Morsmordre, casting the Dark Mark - a green skull with a snakeprotruding from its mouth like a tongue - into the sky. Although Harry did not immediately recognise itssignificance, he soon learned that the Dark Mark had evil implications. Then, Barty Crouch Sr., AmosDiggory, and other Ministry of Magic employees apparated into the clearing and began to question Harry,Ron, and Hermione about the Dark Mark. After Harry mentioned he had heard another voice conjure the
Dark Mark, the Ministry employees searched the area and found the house-elf Winky unconscious in thebushes. Since Harrys wand was found in Winkys hand, Mr. Crouch fired her for shaming his family anddisobeying his orders. Students putting their names in The Goblet of Fire. Added by Vengerer Harry with Rita Skeeter, discussing the Triwizard Tournament. Added by OreadAt the Hogwarts start of term feast,Professor Dumbledore announced thatHogwarts would hostthe Triwizard Tournament, a recently-revived inter-school competition in which theBeauxbatonsAcademy of Magic and the Durmstrang Institute would also participate. New rules stated that onlystudents seventeen and older could compete. Also, during the start of term feast, DumbledoreintroducedAlastor Moody, an ex-Auror, as the newly appointed Defence Against the DarkArts teacher. This news was greeted with a mixture of responses, as Moody was known to be agreat Auror, a little crazy, and to have a magical eye, earning him the nickname "Mad-Eye Moody."Around Halloween the students from Beauxbatons Academy of Magic and DurmstrangInstitute arrived at the school, and Viktor Krum,Fleur Delacour, and Cedric Diggory were allchosen to represent their respective schools in this tournament. However, Harry was mysteriously chosenas a fourth competitor, even though he was under-age and never entered his name into the Goblet ofFire during the selection process. Many people did not believe Harrys story, including Ron believing thisto be nothing but another attempt to gain fame. This caused extreme tension between the twofriends. Hermione, on the other hand, "accepted his story without question," and assisted Harry inpreparing for the Tournament by teaching him useful spells, such as the Summoning Charm, whichHarry used in the first task of the Tournament. The champions faced three dangerous challenges on theirway to the Triwizard Cup. A few days after his name came out of the Goblet, Harry attended the WandWeighing ceremony. There he was cornered by the notorious Daily Prophet reporter RitaSkeeter who asked him many leading questions and wrote an inflammatory article about him.

Harry received helpfrom Hagrid who showed the dragons to Harry. Realising that every champion but Cedrichad found outabout the dragons, Harry told Cedric about the first task, trying to level the playing field. The newlyappointed Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, Alastor Moody, witnessed Harry telling Cedric, butdid not report him. Instead he advised Harry to play to his strengths, hinting that he should use his flyingability to get the golden egg. Four different dragons were chosen for each of the champions toface. Fleur ended up with the CommonWelsh Green, Cedric with the Swedish Short-Snout, Viktor Krum with theChinese Fireball, and Harry faced the Hungarian Horntail. Harryused a Summoning Charm to bring him his Firebolt and dodged the Hungarian Horntail to get the goldenegg. Harry and Viktor Krum tied for first at the end of the task. After seeing how dangerous the taskwas, Ron, as well as the other students, made amends with Harry, with Ron telling him "I reckonsomeone is trying to do you in."

Between the first and second tasks, the Yule Ball, a Triwizard Tournament tradition took place atChristmas. Ron, dismayed to discover that Viktor Krumhad asked Hermione, called her out for"consorting with the enemy" though he and Hermione acted as if they had not fought the following day.Harry asked his long-time crush Cho Chang to attend the Yule Ball with him but was disappointed tolearn that she had already accepted the invitation of Cedric Diggory. Harry and Ron ended upattending with Parvati and Padma Patil, respectively. They both ended up neglecting their dates, asHarry watched Chowith Cedric, and Ron was overcome with jealousy for Viktor Krum, who dancedwith Hermione. After the Yule Ball, Rita Skeeter struck again. She hadoverheard Hagrid telling Madame Maxime about his family. She then wrote an article exposingHagrid as a Half-giant, and he was so ashamed that he stopped teaching. Only after Harry, Ron, andHermione proved that they still liked him, did he return to work.To prepare for the second task, Harry had to open the egg he won from the dragon, but every time he did,it screeched. His rescue from that particular problem came when Cedric paid him back with theinformation that he would figure it out if he "takes a bath" with the egg. Harry followed this advice; while inthe bathroom, he had an uncomfortable exchange with Moaning Myrtle, and on the way back to theCommon Room, he ran into Professors Snape and Moody. The latter informed Harry of BartyCrouch Srs obsession with catching Dark Wizards. Harry did learn that the second task was goinginto the Black Lake to rescue "the thing they would miss most" from the Merpeople. Harrys newproblem was that he had no idea of how to survive underwater for an hour. He got his answer in the formofgillyweed from Dobby, who had come to work at Hogwarts. For this task, Harry had to save his bestfriend Ron. When Harry reached Ron, he was shocked to find Hermione, Cho, and GabrielleDelacour, Fleurs sister, there as well. After Cedric and Viktor rescued Cho and Hermione, respectively,Harry hung around, and, concerned for Gabrielle, he saved her as well as Ron, landing him outside thehour allotted, but earning him points for "moral fibre." After the second task was finished, Harry andCedric were tied for first.A month before the final task, the Champions were shown the beginnings of the challenge. They weretold the third and final task was going into a maze filled with obstacles to find the Triwizard Cup. On theway back to the castleKrum took Harry aside to ask him something. Thinking that this was somethingimportant, Harry went with him. Krum then asked Harry about his relationship with Hermione, in whomKrum was deeply interested. Harry told him that there was nothing between him and Hermione and thatshe was just a friend. He also told Krum not to believe anything Rita Skeeter, who had recently writtenin Witch Weekly that there was a Harry-Hermione-Krum love triangle, wrote about him. That moment,Barty Crouch Sr. appeared in the forest disoriented and asking for Dumbledore. He disappeared again,when Harry went to fetch Dumbledore.

Added by Rangerkid51To prepare for the final task, Harry, Ron, and Hermione used vacant classrooms to practise spells andjinxes. In Divinationclass between two of these study periods, Harry dozed off dreaming aboutVoldemort and left the classroom in a disturbing fashion. Rita Skeeter had witnessed this event, and shewrote on the day of the final task, that Harry was disturbed and dangerous. This did nothing to boostHarrys morale, but when he spent the day with Bill and Molly Weasley, they cheered him up whenthey also came to watch the final task as his substitute family. During this final event, Hogwartschampions Cedric Diggory and Harry both showed supreme sportsmanship and cooperation despitethe tension brought on by the maze and agreed to touch theTriwizard Cup simultaneously, planning totie for first place. They were unaware it was actually a Portkey and were transported to the graveyardin Little Hangleton, the Riddle familys final resting place, where Lord Voldemort was waiting.

Added by Cavalier One "Hes back....Voldemorts back." —Harry to Dumbledore after returning from the graveyard in Little Hangleton.

At which time, the Death Eaters weresummoned to the cemetery. After Voldemort regained a full-size human form and explain his downfall anddisappearance to his followers, he engaged Harry in a duel. Voldemort then tortured Harry with CruciatusCurse and then tried to kill him with the Killing Curse. The nature of their wands mystical connectioncaused their magical streams to interlock, which created an effect called Priori Incantatem. After abattle of wills with Voldemort, Harry was momentarily shielded by the echoes of Lord Voldemorts

In aterrible turn of fate, Crouchs soul was destroyed by the Dementors Kiss from the Dementor thataccompanied Cornelius Fudge. As a result, he could not give testimony, and the Ministry ofMagic began to dispute Harry and Dumbledores insistence that Voldemort had returned insisting thatDumbledore was trying to stir up trouble and that Harry was insane.Fifth year Edit Harry Potter before theWizengamot.

Added by Seth CooperWitnessing Cedric Diggorys murder was very difficult for Harry, and it was not helpful that he was forcedback to 4 Privet Drive on school holidays. To make things worse than they were already, in earlyAugust, Dolores Umbridge, then Senior Under-Secretary to the Minister for Magic, sent Dementors toattack Harry in the Muggle town of Little Whinging, in an attempt to neutralise him. He was forced toperform a Patronus charm to save Dudley and himself. Subsequently, Harry was formally accused ofperforming under-age magic in the presence of a Muggle and was expelled, but thanks to Albus
Dumbledores intervention, it was changed to a Harry in theGryffindor common room. Added by Rangerkid51Disciplinary hearing in front of the entire Wizengamot at the Ministry of Magic. In a further attemptto discredit Harry, the Ministry changed the time and location of the hearing at the last minute, but Harrywas able to make just minutes late. He was threatened with expulsion from Hogwarts, but wasexonerated with help from Dumbledore, who had witnesses and legal loopholes to help him. In retaliationagainst Dumbledore, Minister for Magic Cornelius Fudge appointed Umbridge as the newHogwarts Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher so she could spy on the school. She was laterappointed Hogwarts High Inquisitor, empowered to arbitrarily change and impose school ruleswhenever she chose. More over, every time Harry spoke out of turn, or even mentioned Voldemort,Umbridge threw him into detention, forcing him to write with her quill, that scribed a message "I must nottell lies" onto the back of his hand. However, she presumed the message failed to sink in, as Harryspread the word through The Quibbler about the previous years events, thus banning him from anymore Hogsmeade visits.

It was later revealed that Ron was chosen instead of Harry, becauseDumbledore thought that Harry had "enough responsibility to be going on with." Harrys jealousythreatened to affect his friendship with Ron, but he felt better when he discovered that his Dad was alsonot chosen as a prefect at school. This suggests that Harrys desire in becoming Prefect was to emulatehis father who wasHead Boy in his day with his mother as Head Girl respectively, not to inflate asense of his own importance.
Harry instructs Ron and Cho Chang duringaD.A. meeting. Added by Rangerkid51Because Fudge stubbornly believed that Dumbledore was training an army to overthrow him, Umbridgehad the Defence Against the Dark Arts class reduced to reading textbooks. Urged by Hermione, Harrysecretly trained students in practical defensive magic. In an attempt to make light of the Ministrys fears,the group called themselves Dumbledores Army, or the D.A. Feeling highly anxious and frustratedmost of the time, Harry found that the D.A. was now his chief source of happiness, and the thing to whichhe looked forward throughout his school day. This happiness was felt by most members, as all of them, Cho Chang became a member,particularly Neville Longbottom, gained a lot under Harrys tutelage.and before the Christmas holidays, she and Harry kissed under the mistletoe in the Room ofRequirement. Harry kisses Cho. Added by Rangerkid51 Cedric Diggorys death, hadThis moment was confusing to Harry, as Cho, clearly still suffering frombeen crying. Cho also had misplaced jealousy towards Hermione and defended her friend MariettaEdgecombe when the girl betrayed the D.A. to Umbridge, which caused things between her and Harryto just "fall apart."However, Harry took on some much more pressing worries later that night. Lord Voldemort, wanting a"secret weapon" against Harry Potter, had heard of a prophecy hidden in the Ministrys Departmentof Mysteries concerning both of them. He had been obsessing over the door to the Hall of Prophecy forthe past few months, and had been inadvertently allowing Harry to read his thoughtsthrough Legilimency. The link had been growing stronger for quite awhile. As a result, after fallingasleep on the night of his kiss with Cho, Harry witnessed Nagini attack Arthur Weasley in a dream,and felt almost as if he was the snake. Realising what could happen if the link grew more powerful,Dumbledore commissioned Snape to train Harry in Occlumency in an effort to prevent further
problems. Unfortunately, Harry did not enjoy having his mind peered into and did not focus on usingOcclumency, having indeed been extremely curious about the door. During a lesson in Occlumency,Snape stepped out of the room, and Harrys curiosity got he best of him. He looked intothe pensieve which contained Snapes memories, and, to his dismay, found images of his father bullyingSnape. Snape himself discovered Harrys spying and refused to give him any more Occlumency lessons.As the second term progressed, Harrys relationship with Cho became more strained. While the two didlike each other, Cho was mistakenly jealous of Hermione due to her closeness with Harry, and Harry stillfelt awkward about Chos feelings over Cedric. When Chos friend, Marietta Edgecombe, betrayed theD.A. to Umbridge, the members were all punished and forced to end their meetings. Harry was furiouswith Marietta, but Cho insisted on defending her friend. This was the final straw; at this point, Chos andHarrys relationship "fell apart", and the two no longer saw each other romantically.During the final Quidditch match of the year, in which Harry did not play (Umbridge had banned him forlife),Hagrid, who had returned to the school months into the term and very badly beaten, decided toshow Harry and Hermione why he was so badly injured. Hagrid had dragged a giant back with him fromhis mission over the summer. It transpired that Grawp was Hagrids brother and that Hagrid had beenattempting to civilise the giant, but with few results. He made Harry and Hermione promise that theywould look after Grawp should Hagrid be forced to leave the school. Hagrid was attacked and left theschool during OWL examinations, and Harry never had to go down to Grawp in the forest.Eventually, late in the O.W.L. examinations, Harry dozed off and received a visionof Voldemort torturing Sirius and ordering him to get the prophecy. Harry was full of mind to go to theMinistry immediately, but Hermione advised him to check Grimmauld Place first to see if Sirius was stillthere. Harry used the Floo Network in Umbridges office to peer into Grimmauld Place, where Kreacherstated that Sirius was gone. Unfortunately, Umbridge caught him and his friends in the act. She attemptedto extract information via Veritaserum, which Snape claimed to have used up, before resorting to theCruciatus curse, revealing that it was she who set the Dementors loose on him. Hermione managed tosave him by luring Umbridge into the Forbidden Forest, where she was dragged off bycentaurs forinsulting them. Harry and Hermione escaped when Grawp stumbled into thecentaur camp looking forHagrid. The trio, along with D.A. members Ginny Weasley, Neville Longbottom, and LunaLovegood, who had assisted in Harrys attempt to contact Grimmauld Place, used Thestrals to fly toLondon.

For the second time, he attempted tofatally curse Harry, who was too transfixed to even defend himself, but Dumbledores sudden arrivalsaved him. Voldemort then possessed Harry, hoping that Dumbledore would sacrifice Harry in order to killVoldemort. However, Voldemort was forced to leave Harrys body when Harry grieved for Sirius, whichVoldemort failed to understand. Voldemort then grabbed Bellatrix and Disapparated, but theMinister and Ministry employees saw him first.Back at Hogwarts, Dumbledore explained to Harry the real reason why Voldemort tried to kill him as aninfant. A prophecy stated that he was destined to defeat the Dark Lord, for he had powers Voldemort didnot: the ability tolove, something that the Department of Mysteries was trying to research in a lockedroom.As a result of the battle, the Ministry of Magic realised that Lord Voldemort had returned, and Harryand Dumbledore were vindicated. Serious steps were taken following this change in policy such as thesacking ofDolores Umbridge. However, this was not a sea change as the Ministry still had a mistrustof Dumbledore.Sixth year Edit Dumbledore: "You are of course, wondering why I brought you here tonight?" Harry: "Actually sir, after all these years I sort of just go with it." — Dumbledore and Harry speak briefly of their tasks[src] Dumbledore and Harry searching for Horace Slughorn. Added by Rangerkid51In the wake of the Battleof the Department of Mysteries, in June, Harry was sent home to 4Privet Drive for the summer holidays. There, he obsessed over his godfathers death, hardly leavinghis room and refusing meals. As the battle had taken place in the famed "Hall of Prophecy," many inthe wizarding community including the Daily Prophet began to speculate about the relationshipbetween Harry and that place, leading to, accidentally correct, reports calling Harry "the Chosen One."Early in his summer, Dumbledore requested that Harry join him in some unknown adventure and arrivedto pick Harry up on a Friday, late in the evening. However, they could not depart immediately, becausethere was a piece of business to attend to, Siriuss will. Much to his chagrin, Harry inherited his godfatherSirius Blacks estate, including Grimmauld Place and the Blacks melancholic and half-crazed houseelf, Kreacher. They soon were off, and Dumbledore apparated Harry to the village of BudleighBabberton, where Harry was introduced to Horace Slughorn. In their time together, Harry andSlughorn discussed some of the professors old students and the improved security at Hogwarts. WhenHarry and Dumbledore made to leave, Slughorn agreed to return to the school if he got a raise and a
larger office. Following their visit, Dumbledore dropped Harry off at the Burrow, where Harry spent therest of the summer, but not before informing Harry that he was to be given special lessons byDumbledore himself.

What he heard did nothing to dispel his suspicions. Arrivinglate to the Welcoming Feast, due to an encounter with Malfoy, Harry learned that SeverusSnape had been promoted to Defence Against the Dark Arts professor. While this disappointedHarry, his career as an Auror reopened, as Professor Slughorn would accept his "Exceeds Expectations"score in Potions. As Harry had not bothered to buy a text book, Slughorn allowed Harry to borrow an oldone from the supply cabinet. When Harry examined it, he found that it once belonged to a studentidentified only as "The Half-Blood Prince." The book contained copious handwritten notes that helpedHarry excel in Potions for once. In fact, his skills won him a prize from Slughorn — a small phial of FelixFelicis. Dumbledore pouring amemory into the Pensieve. Added by M. E. G.Within the first week of school, Dumbledore made good on his promise of private lessons. He informedHarry that they would be viewing memories ofTom Riddle and Lord Voldemort in order to learn hissecrets and weaknesses. Dumbledore promised Harry that this information would help him survive andwould prove crucial to the eventual defeat of Lord Voldemort. In their first lesson, the pair delved into the
origin of the boy Tom Riddle in the Gaunt familyaround Little Hangleton. The Saturday followingHarrys first lesson, he assumed his Captains duties holding open try-outs. After an arduous morning,Harry found his three Chasers, including Ginny Weasley, two Beaters, andRon had survived asKeeper, with Hermiones help. Throughout the fall, Harry used Quidditch to dodge ProfessorSlughorns Slug Club events, doing this because he disliked the idea and because it was kinder thanleaving Ron alone as Hermione had been invited as well.Harrys lessons were quite sporadic that fall, and he did not have another one until after tragedy befellsomeone at Hogwarts. In October, during a Hogsmeade visit, Katie Bell was nearly killed after beingbewitched to carry a curse necklace to Dumbledore. The following Monday, Harry shared his suspicionsof Malfoy with Dumbledore during their lesson, only to be rebuffed. That evening, Dumbledore focusedon Tom Riddle just as he was on the cusp of his Hogwarts years, and Harry discovered a troubled orphanwho consciously used his magic to bully and intimidate the other children. Not long after that meeting,Quidditch season was upon them. In preparation for their first game, Harry replaced the injured Katie Bellwith Dean Thomas. The change produced some results, both expected, the team excelled on the pitch,and unexpected, as Harry found himself in a jealous rage after seeing Dean kissing Ginny after practice.The teams only problem was Ron who was suffering from confidence issues. In an attempt to boost Ronsconfidence, Harry blatantly acted as if he spiked Rons pumpkin juice with Felix Felicis. Ron took thebait and played a flawless match; however, Hermione took the bait as well and acted unkindly toward Ronand Harry. While she made up with Harry when he told her of the ruse, Rons sudden relationshipwithLavender Brown led to continued strife. "Oh, come on, Harry. Its not Quidditch thats popular, its you! Youve never been more interesting, and frankly, youve never been more fanciable." —Hermione on Harrys new attention from the girls.[src]While Harry attempted to reconcile his best friends, the Christmas holidays were fast approaching andwith them the Slug Club Christmas party out of which Harry could not wrangle. Since the "ChosenOne" rumours had been printed Harry had received an unnatural amount of attention from the youngladies at Hogwarts, specifically a fourth year name Romilda Vane. As Harry could not ask Ginny tothe party, he was left to ask Luna Lovegood to attend with him as a friend. This hugely disappointedthe gaggles of giggling girls who awaited Harry below every doorway with mistletoe. At the party, Harrywas surprised to learn that Hermione attended with Cormac McLaggen, a largeGryffindor seventh-year whom Ron despised and told her that it served her right when he was less than gentlemanly. Later,after Malfoy was apprehended "gate-crashing" the party, he learned that Malfoy was indeed up tosomething and that Professor Snape had made the Unbreakable Vow to protect him.

Harry: "I told him I was." — Harry and Dumbledore discussing Rufus Scrimgeour [src]Harrys Christmas was less than enjoyable, as he was cornered by the newMinister for Magic, RufusScrimgeour. Scrimgeour had been hoping to speak with Harry for months and used PercyWeasley as his in, interrupting theWeasley family Christmas. He tried pitching Harry on becomingthe Ministrys mascot, an idea that Harry was not prepared to accept. Upon returning to Hogwarts,Harrys sporadic lessons with Dumbledore continued. Early in January, Harry delved into a memory thatall but proved that Riddle killed his paternal family after his fifth year at Hogwarts. Then Dumbledoreshowed Harry a most curious memory, a memory that Professor Slughorn had apparently tamperedwith, and he gave Harry his first homework assignment: to get the real memory from Slughorn. Afterimpressing Slughorn using a bezoar in class, Harry tried the direct approach only to be instantly shotdown.By 1 March, Harry had still not acquired Slughorns true memory and had begun to grow more obsessedwithDraco Malfoy. That morning he awoke to find Ron under the influence of a very powerful LovePotion, and he took him to Slughorn, only for Ron to end up poisoned. This was enough for Hermione toovercome her animosity toward Ron, and the three became friends again. Ron survived, but was not fitfor the upcoming Quidditch match, so he was replaced by McLaggen. This turned out to be a bad choiceas McLaggen accidentally knocked Harry unconscious mid-match. Upon recovery, Harry had yet anotherlesson with the Headmaster. In it, he was a upbraided by Dumbledore for not completing his assignment,witnessed the young Tom Riddle kill a woman for the famous artefacts she owned, and cursethe Defence Against the Dark Arts post at Hogwarts. However, Harry still could not figure out howto obtain the memory and focused on Malfoy. His interest was bordering on obsession, when Ron cameup with the solution to Harrys dilemma with Slughorn, Felix Felicis. In the evening, Harry took thepotion and not only obtained the memory, but solved many of his and his friends problems, includingbreaking up Ginny and Dean and Ron and Lavender. Dumbledore: "Good gracious, Harry, to what do I owe this very late pleasure?" Harry: "Sir — Ive got it. Ive got the memory from Slughorn." — Dumbledore and Harry after getting the memory[src]
Even though it was after midnight, Harry immediately went to Dumbledore with the new memory. Itconfirmed Dumbledores theory that Lord Voldemort had created multiple Horcruxes to ensure hisimmortality. Together, they theorised that the Dark Lord had created horcruxes out of special objects suchas Tom Riddles Diary and Salazar Slytherins Locket. Before Harry left, Dumbledore promised tolet Harry join him if he found another Horcrux. With the memory found, Harry had only Quidditch andMalfoy on his mind. In the week prior to the final Quidditch match, Harry discovered Malfoy crying in therestroom, and a Duel ensued.

From Hogsmeade,they apparated to a sea-side cave, where Tom Riddle had traumatised two young children from hisorphanage in his youth. The cave was difficult to enter with a toll paid in blood, and to get to the island inthe centre of the cave there was only a small boat, only made to fit one. Once on the island, Dumbledorefound a basin that he could not remove the Horcrux from without drinking its contents. Dumbledoreextracted a promise from Harry that he would force him to drink, no matter how much he tried to persuadehim not to. With this promise, Dumbledore drank, and Harry watched as he was driven out of his mind,but he upheld his promise. When the basin was empty, Dumbledore asked for water which Harry wasforced to get from the lake, triggering the Inferi that were waiting there. Panicking, Harry was draggedbelow, but he was saved by an incredibly weakened Dumbledore.They landed atop the Astronomy Tower to discover that Hogwarts had been invaded by DeathEaters, but Harrys friends Ron, Hermione, Luna, Neville, and Ginny, who had been ordered to watchthe school lest Malfoy accomplish his nefarious goal, battled alongside members of the Order of thePhoenix on the floor below Harry and Dumbledore, with some help from the remainder of Harrys vialof Felix Felicis. Dumbledore had stopped Harry from fighting and froze him against a wall, hiddenunderneath his invisibility cloak, so all he could do was watch. Harry witnessed the death of AlbusDumbledore at the hands of Severus Snape, and Dumbledores body then plummeted from the tallesttower at Hogwarts.

The trio quickly headed for the Room of Requirement whereHarry remembered seeing the Diadem the previous year. However, Draco Malfoy, Vincent Crabbe,and Gregory Goyle ambushed them. After a skirmish, the entire room was destroyed by the cursedfire Crabbe unleashed but could not control. Harry managed to fly himself and Malfoy out, while Ron andHermione grabbed Goyle, but Crabbe perished in the flames that also destroyed the diadem.

Added by El Profeta VespertinoWith one Horcrux remaining, Harry, Ron, and Hermione continued their pursuit of Nagini, but before theycould go search for it, they witnessed the death of Fred Weasley. This incensed Ron and Harry, butHermione reminded them that only they could finish Voldemort and that to obtain the final Horcrux they Shrieking Shack. Along the way,would have to do their share of fighting. They fought their way to theHarry witnessed many scenes of horror. On the grounds, Voldemorts Dementors were waiting. Afterhaving seen so much pain and death, Harry could not summon the happiness required to conjureaPatronus. Neither could Hermione or Ron. In fact, Harry welcomed the oblivion that would come withthe DementorsKiss. After seeing the patronuses conjured by Luna Lovegood, Ernie Macmillan,and Seamus Finnigan, Harry summoned the will to conjure his and managed to drive the dementorsaway. Once the trio arrived at the Shrieking Shack, they witnessed Voldemort order Nagini tokill Severus Snape, as he believed that Snape was preventing him from being the true owner oftheElder Wand. Before he died, Snape gave Harry memories to view in the Pensieve and asked himto look into his eyes.Upon returning to the castle, Harry saw the corpses of Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks nearFreds, and he felt devastated. He left his friends behind to use Albus Dumbledores Pensieve,welcoming the time in anothers head. Harry and his friends during the battle. Added by Pol 871Sacrifice "Voldemort had raised his wand. His head was still tilted to one side, like a curious child, wondering what would happen if he proceeded. Harry looked back into the red eyes, and wanted it to happen now, quickly, while he could still stand, before he lost control, before he betrayed fear... He saw the mouth move and a flash of green light, and everything was gone." —Harry sacrifices himself[src] Harry confronts Voldemort in the Forbidden Forest.
Added by You-Know-WhoDuring a one-hour ceasefire, Harry viewed the memories given by a dying Snape, which revealed to himthat he had inadvertently been turned into aHorcrux himself and that Voldemort had to kill him in orderto be rendered mortal himself. Harry also learned that Snape was all along, with Dumbledore because heloved Lily Evans, since before they started school. Heavy of heart, Harry courageously slipped off onhis own to carry out this dreadful task. He feels ghostly as he strides through the castles empty walls,feeling as if he already died. As Harry passes the Great Hall, he could not see Hermione, Ron, or theother Weasleys, and no Luna. He felt he would have given anything for one last look at them, but then hethought he would never be able to stop looking. During his way to Voldemort, he saw the corpse of ColinCreevey and told Neville to kill Nagini, if he could. He passes Ginny, who is comforting a small girl,and almost wishes she could sense him, but under the Invisibility Cloak, this is impossible. As he passesHagrids hut on the Grounds, and emotionally remembers trips there, particularly rock cakes, Ronvomiting slugs, and Norbert.Harry then enters the Forbidden Forest, where he managed to get the Golden Snitch open whichsaid on it "I open at the close" and the words to open it were "Im about to die" revealingthe Resurrection Stone within. Harry used it to speak to the spirits of his parents, Sirius Black,and Remus Lupin, who offered him comfort before he met Voldemort and shielded him from theDementors. As Harry approached the Death Eater camp, he dropped the Resurrection Stone. Harryoffered no resistance as Voldemort struck him with the Killing Curse, thinking of Ginny before he died. Harry being hit by oneKilling Curse casted byVoldemort. Added by Dobby4everHowever, the "death" he met was not permanent: the blood Voldemort had taken from Harry to restore hisphysical form in 1995 still contained the Bond of Blood, anchoring him to life and protecting Harry fromVoldemorts curse, and his willingness to die triggered protections on the people of Hogwarts similar tothe protections he received from his mothers sacrifice. Also, since he had part of Voldemorts soul inhim, Voldemorts killing curse unknowingly destroyed the part of Voldemorts soul, leaving one Horcruxleft. Harry entered a state of limbo, where he met the spirit of Albus Dumbledore and the piece ofVoldemorts soul that had just been destroyed. Dumbledore explained everything to Harry saying that hehad "no more secrets from [Harry]." After reconciling with his mentor, Harry made the choice to return tothe physical world rather than go on to the afterlife with Dumbledore.
Voldemort face-to-face with Harry. Added by SalazarSlytherin "Lets finish this how we started it, Tom: Together." Added by Mr. RedHarry woke up, but feigned death. He was assisted in this by Narcissa Malfoy, who had secretly turnedagainst Voldemort by telling him Harry was dead in order to protect her son, because she knew the onlyway she would be permitted to enter Hogwarts was with the rest of the Death Eaters in their victorymarch. Voldemort then triumphantly disgraced Harrys "dead" body with the Cruciatus Curse then forcedHagrid to carry Harrys body back to Hogwarts, proclaiming Harry dead and demanding surrender. At first,the surviving fighters were heartbroken, especially Ron, Hermione, Ginny and Professor McGonagall.They screamed at the the Death Eaters in anger but remained defiant. NevilleLongbottomcourageously stood up to Voldemort, and when the latter offered Neville a rank in his DeathEater society, Neville proudly refused and screamed "Dumbledores Army!" to the high heavens.Voldemort casted a Body-Binding curse, then summoned the Sorting Hat and placed it upon Nevilleshead. After he announced there will be no houses and the school colours will be those loyal to SalazarSlytherin, he burst the hat into flames. As Neville cried in pain, a distant uproar came from the direction ofthe school boundaries. Centaurs, thestrals, Buckbeak the Hippogriff, and the families of the Hogwartsstudents who remained to fight, plus the shop and home keepers of Hogsmeade joined the fight with aflourish. This distracted Voldemort and his Death Eaters, and Neville was able to pull off the Sorting Hat,and from its depths he received the Sword of Godric Gryffindor and sliced off Naginis head in one swift,fluid motion. Harry slipped away in the ensuing melee under the Invisibility Cloak. Death Eaters started tofold under sheer weight of numbers as the house-elves in the kitchens joined the battle, with Kreacher atits front, declaring war against the Dark Lord in the name of brave Regulus Black. Using his InvisibilityCloak, Harry protected the defenders of Hogwarts from attack. Soon, only Voldemort and BellatrixLestrange were the only two remaining and fighting, Voldemort duelling McGonagall, Slughorn, andKingsley at once, and Bellatrix duelling Hermione, Luna, and Ginny. Harry was torn between the two untilhe saw a Killing Curse shot beside Ginnys ear, the latter missing death by an inch. Harry redirected hispath to Bellatrix, until being roughly knocked aside by Molly Weasley, crying "NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOUBITCH!" As Bellatrix turned to her new opponent with glee, Molly duelled so fierce that Bellatrixs sneer
become a snarl and the floor around their feet became hot and cracked. Bellatrix taunts Mrs. Weasley,before having an insane laugh, permitting Mollys deadly curse to soar beneath Bellatrixs outstretchedarm and hit her right over her heart. Bellatrix froze for a heart stopping moment, and then toppled, lifeless.Voldemorts fury at the fall of his last, best lieutenant exploded with the force of a bomb, and Harry turnedin slow motion to see McGonagall, Slughorn, and Kingsley blasted backwards in pain, and Voldemortdirecting his wand at Molly. Harry then cast a shield charm to protect her from Voldemorts wrath,revealing himself for the final duel. Voldemort attempting to attack Harry Potter onthe Astronomy Tower. Added by Firefox1095Final Duel Harry: "I dont want anyone else to help. Its got to be like this. Its got to be me." Voldemort: "Potter doesnt mean that. This isnt how he works, is it? Who are you going to use as a shield today, Potter?" Harry: "Nobody. There are no more Horcruxes. Its just you and me now Voldemort. Neither can live while the other survives, and one of us is about to leave for good. . ." — Harry and Voldemort face off for the final time.[src] Harry crawling during the Battle of Hogwarts. Added by Firefox1095 Harry casts Expelliarmus. Added by Rangerkid51Unbeknownst to Voldemort, mastery of the Elder Wand, which he had stolen from Dumbledores grave,had not been taken from Dumbledore by Snape, but by Draco Malfoy. Thus, when Harry disarmedMalfoy in Malfoy Manor weeks earlier, he became the true master of the Elder Wand. When Harry andVoldemort faced off for the last time, Harry tried to tell him this and about the other mistakes he had
made. Harry also asked him to feel some remorse, which Voldemort rejected. Voldemort cast the KillingCurse, and Harry countered with Expelliarmus. The Elder Wand refused to attack its master, and theKilling Curse rebounded, killing Voldemort once and for all. The final duelbetween Harry and Voldemort. Added by CJSFan Harry with the Elder Wand and Draco Malfoys wandshortly after defeatingVoldemort. Added by JamesSiriusPotterImmediately, Harry was surrounded by overjoyed fellow fighters; Hermione and Ron reached him first,and then Ginny, Neville and Luna. Victory celebrations began, but Harry soon grew weary, and Lunacreated a distraction so that he could slip away under the Invisibility Cloak to find Ron and Hermione.They visited Albus Dumbledore’s portrait, and along the way he explained everything to his two bestfriends. Harry decided to prevent the Deathly Hallows from ever being reunited again by keepingthe Cloak of Invisibility, leaving theResurrection Stone where it lay in the Forbidden Forest, andreturning the Elder Wand to Dumbledores grave, but not before using it to fix his wand.When Voldemort destroyed the Horcrux that was Harry, Harry Potter lost the ability tospeak Parseltongue, much to his relief. In addition, the scar on Harrys forehead no longer heldmagical powers, nor did it ever cause Harry pain again.Later life Edit "The scar hadnt pained Harry for nineteen years. All was well." —Harrys later life[src]
Harry Potter at age 37. Added by Oiv8After the end of the Second Wizarding War, Harry became an Auror at theMinistry of Magic;new Minister for Magic Kingsley Shacklebolt permitted those who had fought in the final battle tobecome Aurors without getting theirN.E.W.T.s. In 2007, Harry became youngest head of the AurorOffice at the age of 27. He helped to reform and revolutionise the Ministry along with Ron Weasley,who also became an Auror, and Hermione Granger, who was ranked high up in the Department ofMagical Law Enforcement. At some point, all three of them were featured on Chocolate FrogCards for their accomplishments. Harry and Ginny with their children Albus. Added by Oiv8Following the war, he aided in the care of his godson,Teddy Lupin, thus fulfilling his role that his owngodfather, Sirius Black, never got to play. By 2017, Harry had married Ginny Weasley and had threechildren: two sons James Sirius, Albus Severus, and one daughter Lily Luna. In September of thatyear, Harry and Ginny took their three children to Kings Cross Station to see James and Albus off toHogwarts. There, they met Ron and Hermione, and their two children, Harrys niece Rose andnephew Hugo. Albus expressed a fear that he might be sorted into Slytherin house, Harry told his sonhe was named after two Hogwarts Headmasters one being a Slytherin and the "bravest man he everknew." Harry assured him that his parents would be proud of him regardless of where he was sorted, andtold him that the Sorting Hat would take his preferences into consideration, which happened to himself.
Harry ensured that Severus Snapes portrait was hung in the Headmastersoffice at Hogwarts. He also made occasional visits to the school to give lectures to the studentson Defence Against the Dark Arts.Harry was also on "Christmas card" terms with his cousin Dudley and his family, and occasionally visitedhim, which were occasions dreaded by his own children. Harry also made peace with his formerrival Draco Malfoy. They were civil towards each other, however they were still not friends.Physical description Edit Harry in his third year. Added by KickAssJedi "Las time I saw you, you was only a baby. Yeh look a lot like yer dad, but yehve got yer mums eyes." —Rubeus Hagrid to the eleven-year-old Harry Potter.[src]Harry was a near-spitting image of his father, having untidy jet-black hair, but his startlingly green,almond-shaped eyes were identical to those of hismother. Harrys physique as a boy was described as"small and skinny," with a thin face and knobbly knees, due to his poor quality of life in his childhood.However, despite the neglect he suffered, Harry seems to have grown at the same rate as James, aswhen he was fifteen he was within an inch of James at the same age, and when he was seventeen hewas exactly the same height his father was, and James was often described as tall. Harry wore round-rimmed glasses, peculiarly similar to his fathers glasses.Upon Harrys forehead, covered by his unruly black hair, was a scar shaped like a lightning bolt. Thescar was a result of the failed (and famed) Killing Curse cast on him by Lord Voldemort when hewas an infant. It burned painfully whenever Voldemort was near Harry or feeling particularly strongemotions, but this stopped after Voldemorts death and was reduced into an ordinary scar.Harry also had a faint scar on the back of his right hand which says "I must not tell lies." This scar wascaused while Harry spent detentions with Dolores Umbridge, who forced him to use a quill that carvedthe words into the back of his hand.
In addition, Harry has an oval-shaped scar over his heart where the locket-Horcrux seared his skin duringthe confrontation with Nagini in Bathilda Bagshots house, Godrics Hollow.When possessed by Lord Voldemort at the end of the Battle of the Department of Mysteries,Harrys eyes became somewhat glassy green in appearance.Personality Edit "I see Harry as someone who is struggling to do the right thing, who is not without faults, who acts impetuously as you would expect someone of his age to act, but who is ultimately a very loyal person, and a very very courageous person. So, in as much as he has qualities that I admire most I would say he is a good role model. That doesn’t mean that he is saintly, but then frankly, who is? But I think you do see enough of Harry’s inner life, the workings of his mind in the books to know that he is ultimately human, struggling to do the right thing, which I think is admirable." —J.K. RowlingHarry Potter was an extremely brave, loyal and selfless person who possessed tremendous strength ofcharacter. He willingly went to what he truly believed to be his death at the hands of LordVoldemort because he believed that this was the only way to defeat the Dark Lord. Harry was alsomarked by what Hermione Granger once deemed a "saving-people thing" — he would go to greatlengths and take great risks in order to help others, particularly his loved ones. Notably, this was takenadvantage of by Voldemort in 1996, when he lured Harry to the Department of Mysteries by makinghim believe that his godfather was in danger. Harry was also very strong-willed, unafraid to stand up forhimself and able to resist the Imperius Curse at a young age. Dumbledore once made parallelsbetween Harrys traits and qualities that Salazar Slytherin looked for in his own hand-picked students. "Hmm. Difficult. Very difficult. Plenty of courage, I see. Not a bad mind either. Theres talent, oh my goodness, yes - and a nice thirst to prove yourself, now thats interesting... So where shall I put you?" —Sorting Hat to Harry Potter[src]Harry was perfectly prepared to put his friends needs and best interests first, shown by how he ended hisrelationship with Ginny Weasley due to his being concerned for her well being, even though being withher was the best thing that ever happened to him. The amount of trust that Harry put into his friends wasso strong that he absolutely refused to consider that any of them would betray him to Voldemort.Considering that Harry knew a person who had betrayed all of his closest friends to Voldemort, theybeing Harrys parents, godfather and Remus Lupin who was there when Harry declared his trust in him,proves Harrys ability to Love so unequivocally.The closeness that Harry felt for many was great enough for him to behave violently should any of themget harmed. When his godfather was killed by Bellatrix Lestrange, Harry attacked her in a grief-stricken rage and attempted to use the Cruciatus Curse on her. He also attacked SeverusSnape after the latter murdered Albus Dumbledore. Ironically, the only people Harry ever initiated a
duel with were Snape and Bellatrix and he only desired to do so right after they killed someone he loved.This highlights Harrys bravery even further because Harry was fully aware that Snape and Bellatrix weretwo of the greatest wizards and witches of the age but did not hesitate to harm them as soon as he waspushed into it. "Listen to me, Harry. You happen to have many qualities Salazar Slytherin prized in his hand- picked students. His own very rare gift, Parseltongue; resourcefulness; determination; a certain disregard for the rules [...]" —Dumbledore to Harry Potter after defeating the basilisk in the Chamber of Secrets[src] Harry in his sixth year. Added by RemusblackHowever, Harry was also accused of being arrogant, in particular bySeverus Snape (although infairness, Snape was somewhat biased, and Harry often found being famous and admired very difficult),and can be hot-tempered and impulsive. This can sometimes make him rude to authority figures such asProfessor Snape and Minister for Magic Rufus Scrimgeour, and irritable with his friends. Harry wasprone to moodiness during his adolescence, though this is likely the result of the great emotional stressand trials he endured during this period. J. K. Rowling has noted that Harrys lack of emotional controlis what undermined his ability to learn Occlumency. Harry possessed an instinctual, intuitiveintelligence that allowed him to make intellectual leaps as opposed to the logical intelligence of Hermione.For example, Harry divined the truth about the Deathly Hallows, well before Hermione would accept it,and although he was clever, Harry also lacked intellectual curiosity, rarely putting forth effort into schoolwork; for example, he relied on the notes of the "Half-Blood Prince" to get ahead in his sixth-year Potions class rather than devoting time to studying (although he did study reasonably hard forhis Ordinary Wizarding Levels, the only set of wizarding qualifications he sat at Hogwarts). Harryalso seemed to have a bit of an obsessive personality, a trait he shared with his arch enemy LordVoldemort. During his sixth year, Harry became obsessed with finding out what Malfoy was doing. Hepursued Malfoy to the detriment of his other goal such as getting the memory from Slughorn. Also, while
searching for the Horcruxes, Harry became obsessed with the Deathly Hallows and did not fulfil his dutyas the leader of the hunt.Harrys greatest strength was his ability to feel love, despite having a miserable childhood of neglect.Harry was extremely loyal to and protective of his loved ones, and that love was what allowed him toovercome Voldemort. Harry even claimed that he felt sorry for Voldemort because of his inability to feel orunderstand love.Remus Lupin once noted that Harry had very good and nearly always right instincts, as he was rightthat Draco was up to something and that there was a Horcrux in Hogwarts.Harry also cared very much for his children. He comforted his daughter, Lily Potter when she was upsetabout not going to Hogwarts. He also made sure his younger son Albus Potter would not be teased alot by Harrys older son, James Potter II.Although never as given to sarcasm or humour as his best friend Ron, Harry often displayed a dry,occasionally sarcastic, wit. For instance, on finding out that Hermione Granger intended to taketwelve O.W.Ls, he asked her if she planned to eat or sleep at all that year. This humour often becamemore cutting when applied to people Harry disliked: When threatened by Draco Malfoy and his croniesafter the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, Harry remarked that he supposed that "LordVoldemorts just a warm-up act compared to you three."Magical abilities and skills Edit Harry defending himself againstDementors at age fifteen. Added by Oread "False hope? He has achieved high marks in all of hisDefence Against the Dark Arts tests!" —Professor McGonagall arguing with Dolores Umbridge about Harrys career[src]Harry was a reasonably talented wizard with a number of skills that he was extremely good at. Love: Harrys greatest power of all was his ability to love. In spite of being raised by a family that treated him with anything but affection Harry remarkably turned out capable of very strong love. His love for his friends caused him to feel no concern for his own well being or happiness when they were at risk and put himself in danger many times to protect them. His love was strongest when directed at Ginny Weasley whom was the driving force that kept him going until Voldemort was defeated. Defence Against the Dark Arts: Harry was extremely adept in the Defence Against the Dark Arts, having mastered all manners of jinxes and spells, such as the Stunning Spell, Disarming Charm, Impediment Jinxand Reductor Curse. In fact, his Stunning
Spell was so strong that opponents would get knocked out if they were hit directly. Harry also achieved an Outstanding Defence Against the Dark Arts O.W.L., something that not even Hermione achieved, a testament of his extraordinary talent in defensive magic. Indeed, Harry was so good at D.A.D.A. that when the Ministry of Magic prevented the subject from being taught effectively in 1995 Harry set up his own D.A.D.A. club and successfully taught the members to defend themselves well against the Dark Arts (so well indeed that some of them were later able to put up a good fight in the Department of Mysteries). Harry also had developed some resistance to the Imperius Curse, demonstrated when it was first cast upon him by Barty Crouch Jr. (disguised as Alastor Moody) during a Defence Against the Dark Artsclass in his fourth year. Crouch cursed Harry with it four times in a row, until he could throw it off entirely. At the end of the school year, Voldemort himself cast the Imperius Curse on Harry, which he was able to resist, much to the astonishment of the Death Eaters who were present. Harrys natural aptitude for resisting the Imperius Curse, and ability to resist it when cast by the most powerful Dark Wizard in history, demonstrates an indescribable strength of will and character. "Look at that, you lot...Potter fought! He fought it, and he damn near beat it! Well try that again Potter, and the rest of you, pay attention - watch his eyes, thats where you see it - very good, Potter, very good indeed! Theyll have trouble controlling you!" —Barty Crouch Jr., under the guise of Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody on Harrys ability to resist the Imperius Curse[src] Duelling: Despite his young age, Harry was a very skilled duellist, being able to single-handedly defeat Death Eaters and even survive numerous encounters with Lord Voldemort himself. He eventually defeated Voldemort by becoming the master of the Elder Wand. In many battles of the Second Wizarding War, he was able to incapacitate much more experienced Death Eaters, and during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, he was the only one of the six D.A. members to be neither injured nor incapacitated and, along with Albus Dumbledore and Remus Lupin, was the only fighter on their side to emerge from the battle physically unscathed, and in that time he had defeated Lucius Malfoy and had defeated the extremely powerful Antonin Dolohov twice. Later, in the same battle, he was able to hold his own against Bellatrix Lestrange, who was the most powerful of all the Death Eaters. In 1997, Harry defeated Yaxley, Fenrir Greyback, and one of the two Carrows, and briefly held his own against Severus Snape, who was able to block Harrys attempts of cursing him by using Legilimency. He fought off several Death Eaters in the Battle over Little Whinging, defeated Thorfinn Rowle with a single spell during the Skirmish at Luchino Café, knocked out Yaxley and Dolores Umbridge during the Infiltration of the Ministry of Magic, overpowered Lucius Malfoy, Draco Malfoy and Fenrir Greyback during the Skirmish at Malfoy Manor, and avoided direct conflict damage all throughout the Battle of Hogwarts (ensuring that mastery of the Elder Wand did not waver from him). He was known to
be very quick off the draw and had an aggressive duelling style, even incorporating Unforgivable Curses. Harry was especially skilled in the Disarming Charm, and used it so much that it was seen as his "signature spell" by many Death Eaters. His most notable uses of the Disarming Charm were when he formed Priori Incantatem with Voldemort and when he finally killed the Dark Lord. At the remarkably young age of seventeen, Harry became an Auror, and in 2007, was promoted to Head of the Auror Office. Dark Arts: Harry was one of the few non-Dark Wizards who was highly proficient in the Dark Arts at all levels; whilst he knew simple jinxes like Flipendo and the Impediment Jinx, he could use stronger spells such as the Blasting Curse and even attempted some of the Unforgivable Curses with varying degrees of success, such as Imperius Curse on Travers and a goblin called Bogrod during the 1998 Break-In of Gringotts Wizarding Bank as well as the Cruciatus Curse on several occasions - once on Bellatrix Lestrangein 1996 (though he failed then), another on Snape in 1997 (at which time he was prevented from completing the incantation) and once more against Amycus Carrow in 1998, (and whilst the curse was more successful than Harrys past attempts, it did not result in the prolonged, excruciating pain that the curse was famous for - instead, Carrow screamed and was incapacitated). However, he has never used the Killing Curse for obvious reasons, even in his final battle with Voldemort. "You play as good as your father did, Harry." —Sirius Black talking about Harrys flying talent.[src] Harry playing Quidditch in his sixth year.Added by You-Know-Who Flying: Harry had also inherited his fathers talent for flying and forQuidditch, showing immediate command of a broomstick in his first year, which made him a naturally good Seeker. This was the first magical skill for which he discovered an aptitude, as he found in 1991. In fact, at the mere age of eleven, Harry became the youngest Seeker in a century. Harrys extraordinary flying skills aided him when he had to captureWinged Keys to get past Professor Flitwicks challenge in thePhilosophers Stone Chambers, and also helped him in the Triwizard Tournament (where he had to steal a golden egg from a Hungarian Horntail), and during the Battle of Hogwarts, during which he managed to escape a Fiendfyre inferno in the Room of Requirement.
Parselmouth: Because he carried a piece of Voldemorts soul within himself, Harry was able to speak and understand Parseltongue from 1981 to 1998. After that soul fragment was destroyed, Harry lost this ability, which he was glad for. Insight into Voldemorts mind: Also due to the piece of Voldemorts soul, Harry was able to see into Voldemorts mind and through his senses from time to time. He sometimes used this ability to monitor whatVoldemort was doing. However, it was a dangerous ability to have as well; Voldemort once used it, along with Legilimency, to plant a false vision in Harrys mind of Sirius Black being tortured, which he used to lure Harry to the Department of Mysteries. Additionally, because of their connection, Harry felt a burning pain in his scar whenever he and Voldemort were in close proximity or whenever Voldemort felt strong negative emotions. Although Harry failed to learn Occlumency, he did eventually have some success at blocking his connection to Voldemort by focusing on feelings of grief, even though Albus Dumbledore told Harry it waslove. Master of the Deathly Hallows: Harry was master of all three of the Deathly Hallows for a time. Harry overpowered and disarmed Draco Malfoy during a skirmish at Malfoy Manor. Because Draco was unknowingly the master of the Elder Wand, which he had taken from previous owner Albus Dumbledore, the wands allegiance turned to Harry when he disarmed him, although the wand was in Voldemorts possession at the time. Dumbledore left the Resurrection Stone to Harry in his will, contained in the Golden Snitch that Harry had caught during his very first Quidditch match. The Cloak of Invisibility was rightfully Harrys, as it was passed down to him through the generations of the Potter family from its original owner, Ignotus Peverell, who was Harrys ancestor. The Resurrection Stone was lost in the Forbidden Forest in 1998, while Harry returned the Elder Wand to Dumbledores tomb that same year. Harry kept the Invisibility Cloak, as it was a priceless family heirloom. Potioneer: His Potions ability is apparently better than it appears, as he is able to achieve an Exceeds Expectations grade on his O.W.L. exam; and improves greatly during his sixth year when he came into possession of an old potions textbook in which a talented former student (Severus Snape) had revised many potion-making techniques. However, the usage of this textbook was noted by both Hermione and Snape to be cheating, and when forced to hide it, Harrys potion skills suffered. Despite this, it is noted that Harry has no problems with potions at all, albeit for as long as Snape is not around: Harry found that he had no problems brewing a potion when Snape was not bothering him. Transfiguration: Harry was able to conjure ropes in his sixth year and achieved an Exceeds Expectation grade in the subject. Minerva McGonagall herself complemented Harry on his Transfiguration ability. Charms: Harry also achieved an Exceeds Expectations in his Charms work. He frequently used theSummoning Charm successfully and would occasionally cast the protective enchantments
that Hermione would use during the Horcrux hunt. Under the teaching of Remus Lupin, Harry was able to cast a corporealPatronus charm in his third year, which was a remarkable feat and yet another proof of his talent, given that many adult wizards were unable to cast the difficult charm successfully. His Patronus takes the form of a stag, his fathers Animagus and Patronus form. Harrys Patronus is so powerful that, even at the very first time he successfully cast it, it was able to drive away hundreds of Dementors. Apparation: Harry had not earned a license to apparate but he used the ability frequently during 1997 and 1998 to great success, even when forced to apparate with only a seconds notice or while guiding others. Harry used apparation in his sixth year to a very impressive degree to get himself and a weakened Albus Dumbledore over an incredibly vast distance even though he was inexperienced. Harry has stated and it is noted that he does not like the sensation however. Non-verbal and wandless magic: In 1995, when the Dementors attacked in Little Whinging, Dudley had knocked Harrys wand when he punched Harry moments before. In desperation, Harry calls out "Lumos!" Although his wand was not in his hand, the wand tip lit up. During 1997 and 1998 Harry began using spells non-verbally and became quite proficient at it when Snape wasnt bothering him. He used both non-verbal and wandless magic in 1991, when he caused the glass window of a snakes cage at the zoo to vanish and again in 1993 when he inflated Marge Dursley, although both of these occurrences were accidents fuelled by pure anger. Few other wizards have exhibited this power, although Dumbledore and Voldemort were among them. This further contributes to Harrys skill, as only some of the most powerful wizards of his time were able to do so. Care of Magical Creatures: Harry has shown on more than one occasion to have good skill in handling numerous sorts of magical creatures. For example, he was the first in his class to tame a Hippogriff, which he did very excellently. He befriended the Hippogriff, Buckbeak, to the extent that Buckbeak defended him when he was in danger. He has also shown on three occasions that he is quite competent at dealing withdragons. This is shown when he was able to help Hagrid take care of baby Norbert the dragon, outsmart theHungarian Horntail in the Triwizard Tournament, and tame a half-blind dragon into helping them escapeGringotts by flying out on its back. Harry is also quite skilled at dealing with Dementors, which he has shown on many occasions as well. Harry was also good at dealing with house-elves, befriending Dobby and eventually freeing him, which made the little elf so loyal to him that he gave his life to save him. He also earned the respect and loyalty of Kreacher, a difficult task. Herbologist: Harry earned an Exceeds Expectations in Herbology, showing an aptitude in the subject. Detective skills: Harry, along with Ron and Hermione, is also a reasonably talented investigator. While in school the trio had a knack for finding and exposing the truth. In his first year Harry uncovered the truth about the Philosophers Stone and saved it from Voldemort. Over the next six
years he would discover the Chamber of Secrets, learn of Siriuss innocence and Pettigrews betrayal, find the Prophecy, and hunt down and destroy all of Voldemorts Horcruxes using his deductive skills.Possessions Edit "Hes been left a house?" —Vernon Dursley[src] Potter Inheritance: When Harrys parents were murdered by Lord Voldemort, they left behind a somewhat large savings account in vault 687 of Gringotts Wizarding Bank. This inheritance became Harrys source of funding for all his Hogwarts textbooks, wizarding clothes, and the rest for spending money. Wand: As is the case with most wizards and witches, Harrys wand is among his most valued magicalpossessions. Harrys is made of Holly, a wood with the powers to repel evil. The wand is in deliberate contrast to the wand of Lord Voldemort, which is Yew. Harrys wand shared a twin core with Voldemorts wand, as both contained Phoenix feathers from the same phoenix, Fawkes. Harrys wand broke in 1997during a skirmish with Nagini in Bathilda Bagshots house due to a stray spell cast by Hermione Granger. Harry later used the Elder Wand to repair it. Cloak of Invisibility: Another valued and useful possession is Harrys Cloak of Invisibility. In his first year atHogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he received it as an anonymous Christmas gift. He later learned the gift came from Albus Dumbledore, who obtained it in turn from Harrys father, James Potter. It was later revealed to be a family heirloom as well as one of the three Deathly Hallows. From this Harry realises he is a direct descendent of Ignotus Peverell, one of the three brothers who created the Deathly Hallows. It is yet to be decided whether he would give the cloak to his oldest son, James Sirius, or his youngest son, Albus Severus. Hedwig with Harry Potter and Ron Weasley. Added by Webbuildertudor Hedwig: Harrys animal companion, Hedwig was vitally helpful in delivering messages and packages for Harry, especially while Sirius was in hiding from the Ministry. Hedwig loved Harry dearly, showing signs by nibbling his ear or fingers, and loyally obeyed his every command (even pecking Ron and Hermione until they answer back). Harry loved her as much as she loved him.
Hedwig was killed during the Battle over Little Whinging by a stray Killing Curse that was most likely meant for Hagrid. Harry was overcome with grief over Hedwigs death. Marauders Map: One of Harrys most treasured possessions. In his third year, Fred and George Weasley gave it to Harry while he was trying to sneak into Hogsmeade. It was confiscated by Remus Lupin, but later returned when he quit his job. Harry kept it with him for a long period of time, keeping it in the Mokeskin wallet from Hagrid. Harry kept it in his possession until it was stolen from his desk by his son, James. The Deathly Hallows: The Cloak ofInvisibility,Resurrection Stone, and the Elder Wand. Added by Ardeau Deathly Hallows: For a brief time, Harry was master of all three Deathly Hallows: the Cloak of Invisibility, the Resurrection Stone, and theElder Wand (though he was not in physical possession of the Elder Wand until after losing the Resurrection Stone). These three artefacts are the most powerful magical items in all of the wizarding world and were so ancient that they were only the subject of fairy tales. When Harry lost the Resurrection Stone inside the Forbidden Forest, he decided to leave it there. Harry also interred the Elder Wand in Albus Dumbledores grave, so the power of the wand would be extinguished after Harrys eventual death. However, the portrait of Dumbledore that hangs in the Headmasters office advised Harry to keep the Invisibility Cloak, since it was his fathers. Godric Gryffindors Sword: A relic of the founder of Harrys house, the goblin-made sword of Godric Gryffindor was left to Harry by his former Headmaster Albus Dumbledore in his will. However, the Ministry of Magic claimed that it was not Dumbledores to give, and that it truly belonged to Hogwarts. Although the Ministry confiscated a replica of the sword, the true sword found its way into Harrys possession still through the machinations of Severus Snape. Soon after, Ron Weasley used it to destroy Salazar Slytherins Locket, one of Voldemorts Horcruxes. Harry lost the sword to Griphook when he, Ron and Hermione Granger stoleHelga Hufflepuffs Cup from the Lestrange Vault at Gringotts. However, the sword reappeared in the hands ofNeville Longbottom during the Battle of Hogwarts; he used it to kill Nagini, and thus destroyed the last of the Horcruxes. Neville was seen sitting beside the sword after the battle, but it is likely that it was returned to Hogwarts as a relic of the Founders, along with the remains of the other Founders relics. Sirius Blacks Enchanted Knife: This magical knife, with the power to open most mechanical locks and magical seals and which Harry received for Christmas from Sirius Black, was
melted when Harry tried it on a locked door at the Department of Mysteries. The protective enchantments on the door were far stronger than the magic of the enchanted knife. The Firebolt. Added by Boogieach Firebolt broom: During Harrys third year at Hogwarts, the Nimbus 2000 broom hed been riding since his first year was destroyed by theWhomping Willow, and Sirius Black replaced it by giving Harry thefinest broom available as an anonymous gift. The broom was one of Harrys most prized possessions for years. It was lost during the Battle over Little Whinging. It is not known if Harry ever recovered or replaced it. Communication mirror: Harry also owns one in a pair of two-way mirrors, given to him by his godfather Sirius Black. The mirror was intended to be a means covert communication, but Harry broke it out of anger over Sirius death. Harry did not realise the mirror could still work, although he kept a shard out of sentimentality. When Harry and several friends are captured at Malfoy Manor, at the time being used as a headquarters for Voldemort, Harry used the shard of mirror to communicate with Aberforth Dumbledore, who had the other mirror. Aberforth sentDobby to rescue Harry and the other prisoners. Fabian Prewetts watch: Molly Weasley gave Harry the watch of her late brother Fabian Prewett for hisseventeenth birthday. It has a dent in it, but Harry kept the watch, even into his thirties. The watch does not have arms; rather, it has stars. Mokeskin pouch: A birthday present from Hagrid. Harry kept it with him throughout the Deathly Hallows, and kept in it his treasures that were of no use to his search; the Snitch, the broken mirror, his broken wand, his mothers letter and the fake Horcrux.Harry also received a photo album, from Hagrid, which had photos of his parents and other family members.After Sirius Black died, all of his remaining possessions were passed along to Harry. This included: Buckbeak laying down near Hagrids house. Added by Animagi Prongs
Buckbeak/Witherwings: The hippogriff Sirius acquired from Rubeus Hagrid. Harry allowed Hagrid to take care of Buckbeak/Witherwings, as Hagrid had dearly missed the creature while it was in Sirius possession. The Black Family Residence: "As you can see, Harry, Kreacher is showing a certain reluctance to pass into your ownership." —Albus Dumbledore[src]Located at 12 Grimmauld Place, it and all the contents and furnishings of the house,including Kreacher (the family house-elf) became Harrys.Mundungus Fletcher would later try tosteal many of Harrys inherited possessions, including Salazar Slytherins Locket. Black Family Inheritance: Harry also inherited the remainder of Sirius wealth in wizards gold at Gringotts. Since Sirius was disowned at the age of sixteen, it is likely that this wealth was limited to the gold left to him by his uncle Alphard Black. However, that is open to debate because although Sirius Black was disinherited by his family, he ended up inheriting the Black Home after their death, which might lead us to believe in the existence of other forms of inheritance from his family other than what his uncle left him.Relationships EditFamily EditParents Edit Lily and James Potter, his mother and father. Added by RandomEnigma Lily: "You’ve been so brave." James: "You are nearly there. Very close. We are…so proud of you." — Harry’s parents speaking to him through the Resurrection Stone[src]James and Lily Potter died when their son was only a year old. Harry barely knew them, butnevertheless regarded them with great reverence and fiercely defended their memory if anyone spoke illof them. In 1995, he punched Draco Malfoy for insulting his mother, and he frequently became furiouswith Professor Snape, who taunted Harry that James was not the great man others made him out tobe. Snape was, to Harrys horror, proven right in the spring of 1996, when Harry accidentally witnessedJames bully Snape using the Levicorpus spell in one of Snapes memories, via DumbledoresPensieve. However, Harry was relieved to know that his mother was a fair and kind person, who neither
participated in nor tolerated bullying, and would stand up for those in need. Remus Lupin and SiriusBlack later assured him that James had changed his ways, eventually becoming mature enough to winLily over. Harry Potter attempting to hold his mothers hand (from the resurrectionstone) Added by Firefox1095The few times he ever saw his parents were through pictures given to him by Rubeus Hagrid, a visionwithin the Mirror of Erised, spectral forms which came out of Voldemorts wand during PrioriIncantatem, stored memories within the Pensieve, and again as spectral forms when he "recalled" themduring the Battle of Hogwarts, by using the Resurrection Stone. Both James and Lilys spirits toldtheir son that they were tremendously proud of him, for being so brave and strong despite all the sufferingand pain that he had been forced to endure, and gave him the support he needed to sacrifice himself toVoldemort. Harry described their presence as his courage, the very reason why he was able to keepputting one foot in front of the other, with his mother smiling at him, and his father noddingencouragement. Lily Evans dead body. Added by Firefox1095Albus Dumbledore maintained that Harrys greatest strength was his love for his parents and the lovethey had for him, and in part, this literally translated to the protection afforded to Harry by hismothers sacrifice. Harry eventually named two of his children after his parents. After seeing his now-ruined parents house, Harry experienced a flashback into Voldemorts brain and saw the dead corpses ofhis father and mother. The dead body of James Potter. Added by Firefox1095Petunia Dursley Edit
Petunia Dursley, his aunt. Added by Patr0nus Harry: "She doesnt love me. She doesnt give a damn —" Dumbledore: "But she took you. She may have taken you grudgingly, furiously, unwillingly, bitterly, yet still she took you..." — Harry and Albus Dumbledore on Petunia Dursley[src]After Lily and James Potter were murdered by Lord Voldemort, Harry was taken in by his maternalaunt, Petunia Dursley. Petunia had not been fond of her late sister, jealously and bitterly regarding heras a "freak" for her magical abilities. She took out her resentment on Harry, treating him poorly anddepriving him of affection. When Harry was finally told about his Wizarding background, Petunia admittedshe had always feared he would turn out "like his parents." Though after years of neglect, Harry didntparticularly care for his aunt either, although he was concerned enough for the Dursleys to push them togo into hiding during the height of the Second Wizarding War. Just before departing, Petunia gaveher nephew an odd, tremulous look, and seemed to want to say something more to him than goodbye,but ultimately just shook her head and left. She had wanted to wish him luck, and admit that her loathingof him and his world was born out of jealousy, but years of pretending that "normal" was best hadhardened her too much.Dudley Dursley Edit
Dudley Dursley, his cousin. Added by Patr0nus Dudley: "I don’t think you’re a waste of space." Harry: "Well… er… thanks, Dudley." Dudley: "You saved my life." — Harry’s farewell to the Dursleys[src]Harry and his cousin Dudley did not get along very well for most of their early lives.While Vernon and Petunia treated Harry poorly, they spoiled Dudley to the extreme. Dudley constantlybullied his much smaller cousin throughout their childhood, but did his best not to provoke him after hefound out that Harry was awizard, though the two still got into an occasional argument and trading of Dementors that attacked them during theinsults. This changed after Harry saved Dudley from a pair ofsummer of 1995. When the Order of the Phoenix placed theDursleys into hiding to keep them safeduring the height of the Second Wizarding War, Dudley was the only member of the family to expressconcern for Harrys safety, asking his parents why Harry was not accompanying them and where hewould go, if not with them. He also expressed remorse for his prior treatment of Harry, and the two shookhands before the Dursleys left.The cousins eventually reconciled as adults, remaining on "Christmas card terms" and visiting each otheroccasionally. At these times, Harrys three children and Dudleys children would all play together whiletheir fathers would sit together quietly.Vernon Dursley Edit Vernon Dursley, his uncle. Added by Daniel Hu
"Well, Ive got news for you, boy ... Im locking you up ... youre never going back to that school ... never ... and if you try and magic yourself out - theyll expel you" —Vernon Dursley to Harry Potter[src]Vernon Dursley became Harrys uncle through Vernons marriage to Harrys Aunt Petunia. Harry livedwith the Dursleys after Albus Dumbledore appealed to Petunia and convinced her to take Harry infollowing the death of thePotters. Vernon seemed to resent this fact as much as, if not more than, hiswife; he and Petunia begrudged Harry all but the meanest comforts, even forcing their nephew to sleep ina cupboard under the stairs until shortly before Harrys eleventh birthday. Vernon seemed to takeparticular pleasure in showing Harry all he was missing, while simultaneously spoiling and indulgingHarrys cousin, Dudley. In 1995, when Harry and Dudley were attacked by Dementors, Vernondemanded that Harry leave, thinking it the only way to protect his family from Lord Voldemort, thoughPetunia disagreed after receiving a Howler from Dumbledore. In1997, Harry and the Dursleys partedways, thus ending the protection placed on Harry by his mothers sacrifice for as long he had a "home"with his blood relatives, or until he came of age. Vernon, Petunia, and Dudley were hidden by the Orderof the Phoenix, to be protected from the Death Eaters, while Harry was transported totheBurrow prior to searching for Voldemorts Horcruxes. Vernon almost shook Harrys hand, butchanged his mind and left the house quickly.Marjorie Dursley Edit Marge Dursley, his "aunt". Added by IBAmyB "I wont have this namby-pamby, wishy-washy nonsense about not hitting people who deserve it. A good thrashing is whats needed in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred. Have you been beaten often?" —Aunt Marge to Harry[src]Marge Dursley was Vernons sister, whom Harry was forced to call "Aunt Marge" despite only beingindirectly related to her, and despite the fact that Marge, in fact, hated Harry. She seemed to resentHarrys parents for having "left Harry to be a burden on their decent, hard working relatives," and calledhis mother the "bad egg" of Petunias family, while assuming his father was a "good-for-nothing, lazyscrounger" after Vernon told her James had been unemployed. She spoiled Dudley, giving him gifts andmoney, while she gave Harry dog biscuits, and was overjoyed to think he was being regularly beatenat St. Brutus Secure Centre for Incurably Criminal Boys. In 1993, Harry lost control of his
magic, and inflated Marge like a balloon after she insinuated that Harrys parents had a died as a result of Sheffield, and her memory wastheir driving while drunk. She was found floating near a chimney inmodified by the Ministry of Magic; had the Wizarding community not been in a panic about SiriusBlacks escape from Azkaban, the incident could have resulted in serious trouble for Harry.Ron Weasley Edit Ron: "Im sorry. Im sorry I left. I know I was a — a —" Harry: "Youve sort of made up for it tonight. Getting the sword. Finishing off the Horcrux. Saving my life." Ron: "That makes me sound a lot cooler than I was." — Harry and Ron reconcile after Ron returns to the hunt for the Horcruxes [src]Ron Weasley became Harrys best friend during their first year at Hogwarts. Ron, along withhis mother, brothers, and sister first met Harry at Kings Cross Station, when Harry was unable tofind "Platform 9¾." Ron sat across from Harry during the train ride and the two almost immediatelybonded over the ample sweets Harry purchased from the Hogwarts Express food trolley, whichHarry happily shared when Ron was unable to afford any himself. Harry cemented his friendship with Ronby turning down Draco Malfoys offer to help Harry avoid making friends "with the wrong sort," afterDraco insulted Rons family. After being sorted into Gryffindor House together and sharing the samedormitory, the two grew even closer, and eventually gained another best friend in HermioneGranger when they saved her from a troll on Halloween. As Ron was raised in a wizarding family, hewas often called upon to explain customs and items that were commonplace to wizards, but completelynew to Harry and Hermione, who had both been raised in Muggle society.In the summer of 1992, after Dobby had prevented Harry from receiving any letters, Ron and his twinbrothers (Fred and George) flew their fathers Flying Ford Anglia to rescue Harry from PrivetDrive. After spending a few days atRons home, Harry and Ron were supposed to return to school onthe Hogwarts Express with Rons other siblings. However, Dobby had blocked the entrance to theplatform, and Harry and Ron were unable to board the train. Panicking, the pair flew the enchanted car toHogwarts; however, they landed on the Whomping Willow and lost the car as well as broke Ronswand. Later on in the year, when Hermione had been Petrified by Salazar Slytherins basilisk,Harry and Ron ventured into the Forbidden Forest together, where they were rescued fromaclan of Acromantula by the missing Ford Anglia. Ron also accompanied Harry down tothe Chamber of Secretsthe same year to rescue his sister Ginny.
Harry helping Ron, after he has unknowingly takenAmortentia. Added by Patr0nusHarry and Ron had a major falling out in 1994 when Harry was made aTriwizard Champion; despiteknowing it to be completely contrary to Harrys character, Rons insecurities initially led him to believeHarry had cheated in order to enter the tournament, but left Ron out of scheme to keep the resulting gloryand attention for himself. However, Ron soon realised how badly he had misjudged the situation andapologised. Ron was later taken as the object Harry would "sorely miss" in the Second Task of thecompetition. 1997, when they, along with Hermione, wereHarry and Ron had an even more serious falling out inhunting Voldemorts Horcruxes; the negative energy within Salazar Slytherins Locket affected Ronmore severely than the other two, causing him to temporarily abandon his friends before regretting hisdecision, and returning to them as soon as he was able. Ron: "What are you doing? Are you staying, or what?" Hermione: "I... Yes - yes, Im staying. Ron, we said wed go with Harry, we said wed help -" Ron: "I get it. You choose him." Hermione: "Ron, no - please - come back, come back!" — Ron after an argument with Harry and Hermione.[src]Upon his return, Ron watched Harry follow the silver doe to Godric Gryffindors sword, and savedHarrys life after he jumped into a lake to retrieve it. When Harry finally opened thelocket, Voldemorts soul targeted Ron, using images of Harry and Hermiones likenesses taunting Ronand then kissing, to emotionally torture him. Ron overcame his insecurities by plunging the Sword into thelocket, effectively destroying another of Voldemorts horcruxes.The hardships Ron and Harry faced together served to reinforce their bond, and they remained friends forlife. Rons fierce loyalty and sense of humour often helped Harry relax and have fun even in the darkesttimes of his life. The two were like brothers, and would eventually become brothers-in-law when Harrymarried Ginny. Ron was the uncle of Harrys three children, and became godfather to Harry and Ginnyseldest son, James Sirius Potter.
Hermione Granger Edit Hermione Granger, his best friend and sister-in-law. Added by Jazzkee122 "Shes like my sister. I love her like a sister, and I reckon she feels the same way about me. It’s always been like that." —Harry talking to Ron Weasley about his relationship with Hermione Granger in 1997[src]Though Harry and Ron initially found Hermione Granger stuck-up and arrogant, the three becamebest friends after Harry and Ron saved her from a troll in 1991, and she, in turn, lied to keep them fromgetting in trouble. Her quick mind was at times the only thing that saved the three friends from potentialfailure in both life-threatening and every-day situations. Out of concern for her friend, Hermione oftenchided Harry for his recklessness; though this occasionally put some strain on their relationship, it oftenserved to keep Harry on track, such as when he briefly considered pursuing the DeathlyHallows instead of the Horcruxes.

Hermione always stuck by Harry and was fiercely protective of him, from snapping atLavenderBrown when she doubted Harrys claim that Lord Voldemort returned to interceding when DoloresUmbridge was about to use the Cruciatus Curse on Harry. Hermione stood by Harry evenwhen Rondoubted him during the Triwizard Tournament, accepting his story "without question," andwhen Ron temporarily left them in 1997, despite her own romantic feelings for Ron.

Harry and Hermione hugging before he makes hissacrifice. Added by Burwic13Though their friendship remained entirely platonic, at times their closeness engendered jealously orcuriosity in others — especially those who had feelings for one or the other, including Cho Chang, ViktorKrum, and even Ron. When the two were briefly alone together during the search for the Horcruxes,Harry and Hermione experienced some "charged moments," in which the two "shared something veryintense;", however, each remained devoted toGinny and Ron, respectively.As Harry himself described, Hermione was his closest female friend, akin to a sister. It could be furthersaid she was like his older sister, protective and always trying to keep him in line. The two were also closeenough to share their feelings with one another, Hermione regarding Ron and Harry regarding ChoChang and later Ginny. Through Hermiones marriage to Ron Weasley, and through Harrys marriageto Ginny, Hermione became his sister-in-law, as well as the godmother of his oldest child.

—Ron on Ginnys change of behaviour in the presence of Harry.[src]Ginny Weasley and Harry first met at Kings Cross Station in 1991, though they did not formallymeet until the summer of 1992, at which point it became blatantly clear that Ginny had a huge crush onHarry.Though the feeling moderated over time, until 1995 she was too shy and nervous around him to evenspeak to him comfortably; he was a celebrity in her eyes, and to him she was his best friends little sister.She became even further embarrassed after Harry saved her from the Chamber of Secrets in hissecond year, when she had been possessed by a fragment of LordVoldemorts soul. Hermione helped Ginny by advising her to be more like herself around Harry, andperhaps even see other people. Ginny took this advice, and Harry came to see her as she truly was:strong-willed, witty and compassionate. The two became friends in Harrys fifth year. Harry spends time with Ginny on his 17th birthday. Added by Firefox1095After his relationship with Cho Chang "fell apart" and Harry spent a good deal of time with Ginny aswell as Ron and Hermione at The Burrow in the summer of 1996, Harrys feelings for Ginny beganto deepen and change. In his first potions class with Slughorn, the love potion Amortentia revealed hewas attracted to "something flowery he had smelled at the Burrow," which later turned out to be Ginnyshair. After witnessing her kissing Dean Thomas, Harry started to feel jealous and fantasise aboutkissing her himself, although he determinedly tried to convince himself that his feelings for her were"elder-brotherly."

Added by E.a.t.m.y.s.o.c.k.sShortly after Ginny and Dean broke up, she and Harry spontaneously kissed at a Gryffindor QuidditchCup victory party. The two began dating, and Harry regarded this time as one of the happiest in his life.However, after the murder of Albus Dumbledore, Harry decided to end things with Ginny, fearingthatVoldemort would target her if he learned of their romance and knowing that he would be leaving
with Ron and Hermione to find Voldemorts Horcruxes. Ginny was upset, but accepted Harrys decision,knowing that it was for "some stupid, noble reason." Ginny: "I’d like you to have something to remember me by, you know, if you meet some veela when you’re off doing whatever you’re doing." Harry: "I think dating opportunities are going to be pretty thin on the ground, to be honest."

Added by You-Know-WhoThe two soon saw each other again during the summer while Harry stayed at the Burrow. For Harrysseventeenth birthday, Ginny passionately kissed Harry as something for him to remember her by, butthey were intentionally interrupted by Ron, with Hermione in tow.The former told Harry not to "mess [Ginny] around," as his sister had been "pretty cut up" when Harryended their relationship. The two were soon separated for months as Harry trackeddownHorcruxes with Hermione and Ron, while Ginny returned toHogwarts, but still harboured feelingsfor one another. After Ron abandoned his friends, Harry took to staring at Ginnys dot onthe Marauders Map, and was worried when he heard that she, Neville, and Luna had gotten introuble for attempting to steal Godric Gryffindors Sword for him.When the Battle of Hogwarts began, Harry wanted Ginny to stay out of the fighting but was forced toask her to leave the safety of the Room of Requirement when he, Hermione, and Ron searched itfor Rowena Ravenclaws Diadem. When preparing to sacrifice himself to Voldemort, Ginny was thelast person about whom Harry thought. Later in battle, after Ginny was nearly killed by BellatrixLestrange, Harry ran at Bellatrix rather than Voldemort, though Mrs. Weasley got there first.After Voldemorts defeat, Harry and Ginny resumed their romance. Sometime between 1999 to 2002, theymarried and had three children: James Sirius, Albus Severus, and Lily Luna.Weasley family Edit
The Weasley Family, his second family. Added by Starstuff "Half our family does seem to owe you their lives, now I stop and think about it...well, all I can say is that it was a lucky day for the Weasleys when Ron decided to sit in your compartment on the Hogwarts Express, Harry." —Arthur Weasley to Harry in the Hogwarts hospital wing after Ron accidently drank a glass of poisoned oak-matured mead.[src]Beginning in the summer of 1992, Harry came to spend many of his holidays with the Weasley family,at the the Burrow. Through his friendship with Ron, and his later romance with Ginny, the Weasleysbecame far more of a family to him than the Dursleys ever were.Molly Weasley announced to Harrys godfather that Harry was "as good as" one of her actual sons,and herBoggart - of dead family members, one after another - included Harry. She was always keen tomake sure Harry was taken care of; at one point Harry noted that she "fussed over the state of his socksand tried to get him to eat fourth helpings at every meal." Her caring sometimes led her to becomeoverprotective of Harry, such as when she strongly objected to the Order members giving Harryinformation regarding Voldemort during the summer of 1995.Arthur Weasley had always enjoyed discussing Muggle things with Harry, and entrusted Harry withsensitive information others had felt him too young to understand. Harry once saved Mr. Weasleys life,after seeing Him being attacked by Nagini in the Department of Mysteries before Christmasof 1995.When Ron was poisoned in Harrys sixth year, and Harry saved him with a Bezoar, Arthur pointed outhow he had saved several members of the Weasley family, and said that it was a good day for theWeasleys when Ron decided to sit with him on the train in 1991.Twins Fred and George Weasley helped Harry out numerous times, including saving him from theDursleys during the summer of 1992 with an enchanted car, giving him the Marauders Map in 1993,as well as volunteering to beD.A. members in 1995 and later that same year, distracting DoloresUmbridge so that Harry could use her office to communicate with Sirius Black. The twins, whomHarry regarded as close friends, were also on the Gryffindor Quidditch team with Harry for fouryears. Harry gave his Triwizard winnings to the Weasley twins to startWeasleys Wizard Wheezes,and in their gratitude for the "start-up loan," they gave Harry products from their joke shop free of charge.Freds death during the Battle of Hogwarts was one of the deaths that hit Harry the hardest.
Harry liked Percy Weasley the least of Rons brothers, finding him pompous, although he was genuinely 1995. Percy later came to his senses andshocked when Percy sided with the Ministry against him infought alongside Harry in the Battle of Hogwarts. When Harry saw his sons go to Hogwarts, hethought he overheard Percy talking and "was glad to have the excuse not to stop and say hello". He wasalso friends with Bill, describing him as "cool" upon first meeting him, participating at his weddingwith FleurDelacour, and living for a month at their house, Shell Cottage. He also liked Charlie,who helped him out somewhat during the Triwizard Tournament. In his first year, Harry heard manytimes that Charlie was a great Quidditch player, and was very happy when he and his team lived up toCharlies reputation.After the end of the Second Wizarding War, Harry officially became part of the Weasley familythrough his marriage to Ginny.Albus Dumbledore Edit Albus Dumbledore and Harry Potter, in the Astronomy Tower. Added by JaumeDS Hermione: "Harry, Im sorry, but I think the real reason youre so angry is that Dumbledore never told you any of this himself." Harry: "Maybe I am! Look what he asked from me, Hermione! Risk your life, Harry!... And dont expect me to explain everything, just trust me blindly...even though I dont trust you! Never the whole truth! Never!" Hermione: "He loved you. I know he loved you." — Harry and Hermione discussing the secrets Dumbledore kept[src]Albus Dumbledore was a mentor to Harry, akin to a grandfather figure. Dumbledore arranged forHarry to be rescued from Godrics Hollow after his parents murder and left him in the care of hisaunt Petunia Dursley in order to give him the benefit of the magical protection of his mothers blood. InHarrys fifth year, he admitted to Harry that he had not told him of the prophecyconcerning himselfand Voldemort, because he wanted to spare Harry the pain and responsibility it would burden him withfor as long as possible. Though Harry was initially furious with him for the frustration he felt for being keptin the dark, the two continued to be close. By Harrys sixth year, Dumbledore took on the role ofproviding Harry with additional insights into the origins of Lord Voldemort, largely through the use ofthe Pensieve. He entrusted Harry with the task of getting a final, crucial memory from HoraceSlughorn regarding Voldemorts knowledge ofHorcruxes.
Harry and Dumbledore. Added by You-Know-WhoDumbledores death was greatly devastating to Harry, though he persevered in the impossibly difficulttask Dumbledore had left him of finding and destroying each of Voldemorts Horcruxes. Harry haddifficulty coping with the fact that there was much Dumbledore had not told him about his history withtheDeathly Hallows and Gellert Grindelwald; however, when he learned during theBattle ofHogwarts that Dumbledore had supposedly planned all along for Harry to sacrifice himself, Harryinnately showed incredible faith in his mentor by serenely accepting the task. When Harry allowed himselfto be struck by Voldemorts Killing Curse, his soul entered a state of Limbo, resembling KingsCross Station, where Dumbledore was waiting to speak with him. "Do not pity the dead, Harry, pity the living. Above all, pity those who live without love." —Dumbledores parting words to Harry during their encounter in Limbo.[src]The fact that Dumbledore himself was there to meet Harry in a place between life and death attested tothe bond of fellowship between them. They discussed all that had happened to Harry since Dumbledoresdeath, as well as things that had remained unsaid prior to it. At one point, Dumbledore seemed to beg forHarrys reassurance, uncharacteristically doubting some of the decisions he had made in the course ofhis life, which Harry easily gave him. Though Harry had felt some resentment for how little he feltDumbledore had actually revealed of himself in their time together, Harry probably learned secrets andsaw a side of Dumbledore that no one else knew during the events at "Kings Cross."Harry also had a unique relationship Dumbledores phoenix, Fawkes; not only was Harrys wand one ofthe only two ever made with feathers from Fawkess tail, but the phoenix found Harry in the Chamber ofSecrets, helped him kill Salazar Slytherins Basilisk, and provided Harry with the only knownantidote to Basilisk venom: phoenix tears. Fawkess song was a source of comfort for Harry on anumber occasions before the phoenix left Hogwarts following Dumbledores death.Harry later named his second son Albus, after the Hogwarts Headmaster.
Lord Voldemort Edit Harry Potter and the Dark Lord before their final duel. Added by Firefox1095 "Don’t you turn your back on me, Harry Potter! I want you to look at me when I kill you! I want to see the light leave your eyes!" —Voldemort taunting Harry before the duel in the graveyard.[src]Lord Voldemort and Harry Potters destinies were locked when a prophecyforetelling of child "withthe power to Vanquish the Dark Lord" was made and relayed in part Voldemort, who decided to act toprevent it from coming to fruition. Though two infants fit the description of the "Chosen One," Voldemortbelieved the son of James and Lily Potter posed the greater threat, as he, like Voldemort himself,was a Half-blood. In attempting to kill Harry (and in failing to so, unintentionally embedding a piece ofhis souland some of his own abilities into Harry) he effectively marked Harry "as his equal." It was onlyafter Voldemort attacked Harry that the latter became a Parselmouth, a trait Voldemort inheritedfrom Salazar Slytherin, and was able to see into Voldemorts mind on occasion—both tools that aidedHarry in bringing about Lord Voldemorts end.True to the prophecy, Harrys parents James and Lily Potter defied Voldemort three times and, ontheir fourth encounter, were killed. When Lily refused to move aside and allow Voldemort access to histrue target, her son, her willing sacrifice afforded Harry a protection so powerful, it caused the KillingCurse Voldemort aimed at Harry to rebound. Voldemorts body was destroyed, and the fragment of soulresiding within it was forced to flee and exist in a weak, spectral form. "There is no good and evil... Theres only power, and those who are too weak to seek it..." —Voldemort, speaking through Quirrell, in 1992.[src] Tom Marvolo Riddle and Harry Potter in the Chamber ofSecrets. Added by SmonoccoAfter the 1981 attack, Harry met Voldemort again in 1992, when the latter, sharing Professor QuirinusQuirrells body, attempted to steal the Philosophers Stone from Hogwarts. As
the enchantmentguarding the stone would only grant it to someone who wanted to find but not use it,Harry was able to do what Voldemort and Quirrell werent. Voldemort attempted to use what he knewabout Harry to convince the boy to hand the stone over—offering him power first, but then the possibilityof seeing his parents again—and when Harry refused, he ordered Quirrell to retrieve the stone by force.When Quirrell was unable to touch Harry without experiencing excruciating pain, Voldemort gained someappreciation of the enduring power of Lily Potters sacrifice, though this knowledge didnt stop him fromcontinuing to underestimate the power of love. "You! Youre the Heir of Slytherin! Youre Voldemort!" —Harry Potter[src]A year later, Lucius Malfoy slipped Tom Riddles Diary into a pile of books Ginny Weasley washolding. Unbeknownst to both Ginny and Lucius, the latter most likely believing the Diary was simplyenchanted to open the Chamber of Secrets, a fragment of Lord Voldemorts soul possessed Ginnyand used her to free Salazar Slytherins basilisk. When Riddle eventually brought Ginny into theChamber, intending to use her life to restore his own, Harry—being a Parselmouth, and thus able to enterthe chamber—followed to rescue Ginny. When Harry demonstrated the traits of a "true Gryffindor" byonce again standing up to Voldemort, Fawkes the phoenix brought Harry the Sorting Hat, from whichhe was able to pull Godric Gryffindors Sword. Harry used the Sword to stab the Basilisk, and thenplunged one of the snakes fangs into Tom Riddles Diary; as Basilisk venom was one of the fewsubstances capable of causing near-irreparable damage, Harry thus unknowingly destroyed one ofVoldemortsHorcruxes for the first time. It was also here where he first learned that Voldemorts originalname was Tom Marvolo Riddle, a fact that shocked Harry, as he originally thought Riddle was a rolemodel student, as many others once believed. "Lord Voldemort had risen again..." —description of Voldemorts rebirth[src]In 1995, Harry witnessed Lord Voldemorts resurrection after he and Cedric Diggory weretransported to Little Hangleton Graveyard by way of a secret Portkey. PeterPettigrew murdered Diggory, and then proceeded to concoct a potion to restore Voldemort to physicalform, using one of his own hands, bones dug up from the grave of Voldemorts father, and Harrys blood.Upon regaining a body, Voldemort attempted once again to eliminate the threat Harry posed, this timewith Harrys blood—and as such, his mothers protection—running through his veins. As Voldemort hadexpected, it no longer caused him pain to touch Harry, and in his arrogance and confidence at havingovercome what he believed was the only obstacle that had prevented him from killing Harry in the firstplace, he initiated a duel. Harry was able to aim a Disarming Charm at Voldemort exactly at the sametime the latter attempted another Killing Curse, and the two spells collided, causing the rare PrioriIncantatem effect. Ghost-like echoes of Voldemorts last victims, including Cedric Diggory and HarrysParents, emerged from his wand, and held Voldemort off while Harry escaped back to Hogwarts withCedrics body.
"The usual rules do not seem to apply to you, Potter. The curse that failed to kill you seems to have forged some kind of connection between you and the Dark Lord. The evidence suggests that at times, when your mind is most relaxed and vulnerable -- when you are asleep, for instance -- you are sharing the Dark Lords thoughts and emotions. The headmaster thinks it inadvisable for this to continue. He wishes me to teach you how to close your mind to the Dark Lord." —Severus Snape discussing the connection between Harry and Voldemorts minds Lord Voldemort and Harry during the Battle of Hogwarts. Added by You-Know-WhoHaving once again failed to kill Harry, Voldemort was determined to discover what was contained in theportion of the Prophecy he had not heard, and set plans in motion to retrieve a copy of it from thefabled Hall of Prophecy. Though Harry, as the subject of the Prophecy, would have been the only oneable to remove the record, Voldemort succeeded in getting into Harrys head, in more ways than one, withthe help of the bullheaded refusal of Cornelius Fudge, and the Ministry of Magic, to acknowledgeVoldemorts return. As the Ministry launched a smear campaign throughout Harrys fifth year atHogwarts, in a bid to discredit him, Harry was filled with feelings of isolation and self-doubt that made himincreasingly vulnerable to Voldemorts manipulation. After discovering that Harry had been able morethan once to see into his mind, Voldemort planted a fake vision of Harrys godfather, Sirius Black, beingtortured in the Hallof Prophecy; Harry was thus lured to the Ministry in his desire to save Sirius, wherehe was ambushed by several Death Eaters.Though the record of the Prophecy was smashed in the ensuing battle, Voldemort entered the Ministryto confront Harry once more. When Voldemorts third Killing Curse aimed at Harry was deflected byHogwarts HeadmasterAlbus Dumbledore, Voldemort possessed Harry, causing the boy so much painthat he begged Dumbledore to kill them both. However, as Voldemort was incapable of feeling love, thegrief Harry felt for the death of his godfather, whom he had just seen killed in the Death Chamber,caused Voldemort unbearable pain. Moments after Voldemort was driven out Harrys mind, theMinistrys Aurors, along with Cornelius Fudge himself, arrived on the scene; having seen the Dark Lordwith his own eyes, Fudge was finally forced to acknowledge his return. Feeling responsible for the deathof Harrys godfather, Dumbledore finally revealed to Harry the full extent of his significance to LordVoldemort, as well as the significance of The Prophecy to Harry, and the depth of Lilys sacrifice. "Did you know how I survived, sir? The night Ive got this... Because of her... because she sacrificed herself... because she refused to step aside... because her love was more powerful than Voldemort..." —Harry Potter to Horace Slughorn[src]
Fully confident that Voldemort would never again enter Harrys mind, Dumbledore began teaching Harryabout the origins of Tom Riddle, by showing Harry the Headmasters own memories of the youngerVoldemort, as well as those obtained from Riddles few surviving victims. Though Harry was disturbed tonotice many similarities between them — both were orphans who considered Hogwarts their first realhomes, and both physically resembled their fathers, as well as, to some degree, each other—Dumbledoreinsisted that they differed in one absolutely crucial way; Harry had the ability to love, while Voldemort didnot.A memory Dumbledore enlisted Harrys help to retrieve from Horace Slughorn confirmed hissuspicions of all Voldemort had done to "to go farther down the path to immortality than anyone else;"following Dumbledores death in 1997, Harry resolutely took up the the task Dumbledore had started ofreturning Lord Voldemort to mortality by destroying his Horcruxes.During the time he spent searching for Voldemorts horcruxes, Harry was able to see into Voldemort’smind whenever the latter was filled with such a strong surge of emotion that he was unable toapply Occlumency. In December of 1998, Harry became aware of the Deathly Hallows, andthrough his mental connection with Voldemort, discovered the Dark Lord was attempting to track downthe Elder Wand. Harry "watched" as Voldemort tortured and killed his way to the Elder Wands currentlocation: Albus Dumbledores tomb. Though he had initially thought to try and find the reputedlyunbeatable wand himself, the grief Harry felt for Dobbys death grounded him, and he made theconscious decision to pursue the Horcruxes, not the Hallows, choosing not to try and beat Voldemort toHogwarts.After destroying all of Voldemorts known Horcruxes, with the exception of Nagini, Harry learned duringthe Battle of Hogwarts that he was, himself, a Horcrux, and thus allowed himself to be hit withVoldemorts Killing Curse. However, when Voldemort had used Harrys blood to restore his body, hehad unwittingly bound Harrys life to his own, and as such, the curse only destroyed the piece ofVoldemort’s soul within Harry, while Harry survived. "Be a man... try... try for some remorse..." —Harry giving Voldemort one last chance[src] Harry and Voldemort falling during Battle of Hogwarts. Added by Dobby4everAs the two faced off one last time, Harry urged Voldemort to feel remorse—the only known means ofrepairing a fractured soul—but Voldemort reacted with disdain. Harry went on to inform Voldemort thatdespite wielding the Elder Wand, he was not its master; Draco Malfoy won the wands allegiance bydisarming Dumbledore, but Harry had disarmed Draco weeks ago. Thus, Harry was the true master of theElder Wand. In his fury, Voldemort made one last attempt at Harrys life, but the Elder Wand was loyal
to Harry, and the Killing Curse once again backfired on to Voldemort. Without his Horcruxes to sustainhim, this time the curse finally and completely ended Voldemorts life. Voldemort: "Potter doesnt mean that. Who else are you going to use as a shield today, Potter?" Harry Potter: "No one. There are no more Horcruxes. Its just you and me. One of us is going to leave for good." — The final confrontation between Voldemort and Harry at the Battle of Hogwarts[src]Voldemort and Harry were also related by blood, however distantly, through their shared descent from thePeverells (Voldemort through the Gaunts and Harry through the Potters). This made them distantcousins.Dumbledore described the relationship between Voldemort and Harry as follows: "You and LordVoldemort have journeyed together into realms of magic hitherto unknown and untested... Voldemortwrapped your destinies together more securely than ever two wizards were joined in history...both kin andmortal enemy..."Rubeus Hagrid Edit Harry with Rubeus Hagrid, his friend, protector and teacher. Added by Pol 871 "Theres no Hogwarts without you, Hagrid." —Harry, after Hagrids return from Azkaban[src]Rubeus Hagrid was Harrys first friend in the wizarding world. In effect, he rescued Harry twice:once from the wreckage of his destroyed home, as a baby; second, from the Dursleys to take him backinto the wizarding world.Both orphaned outsiders, Harry and Hagrid shared a bond that Harry never failed to honour. Heconstantly defended the half-giant against name-calling and mockery, and despite his disapproval,helped Hagrid protect various dangerous pets and raise his half-brother, Grawp. Harry also refused tobelieve Hagrid opened the Chamber of Secrets, when Tom Riddles Diary showed him thememory.During the Battle of Hogwarts in 1998, Voldemort forced a distraught Hagrid to carry Harrys"corpse" out of theForbidden Forest, during which time Hagrid expressed his fury withthe centaurs for initially refusing to fight, prompting them to join in soon after.
In 2017, Harrys sons, James and Albus, were planning to meet Hagrid for tea shortly after their arrivalatHogwarts.Sirius Black Edit Sirius Black, his godfather. Added by Greekpimp "I want you to listen to me very carefully, Harry. Youre not a bad person. Youre a very good person who bad things have happened to, you understand? Besides, the world isnt split into good people and Death Eaters. Weve all got both light and dark inside of us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. Thats who we really are." —Sirius Black to Harry Potter while in 12 Grimmauld Place[src]Filling in as a paternal figure or an uncle, Sirius Black was Harrys godfather, as well as his mosttrusted confidant. When Harrys scar hurt in 1994, he acknowledged that he could tell and ask Siriusanything without feeling foolish, hesitant, or uncomfortable. During Dolores Umbridges dictatorial ruleover Hogwarts in the 1995–1996 school year, Sirius supported Harrys plan to teach otherstudents practical defensive magic, telling Harry that he and James would have done the same thing.When Harry first met Sirius, he wanted to kill Sirius for the betrayal of his parents. When the truth wasrevealed that Peter Pettigrew had been the one who sold the Potters to Lord Voldemort, Sirius stillshowed immense guilt, because it had been his idea for Pettigrew to become the Potters Secret-Keeper. Harry with Sirius moments before his death. Added by Profiteor
"It was cruel that you and Sirius had such a short time together. A brutal ending to what should have been a long and happy relationship." —Albus Dumbledore[src]Harry, for his part, became very protective of Sirius. Knowing that the Ministry believed him guilty of massmurder, Harry refused to put Sirius in danger if it could be avoided. When Harry was mysteriously enteredinto the Triwizard Tournament, he tried everything to convince Sirius to remain in hiding instead ofreturning to England. During Umbridges year at the school, Harry asked Sirius not to cometo Hogsmeade as Padfoot, since he didnt want to risk Sirius getting thrown back into Azkaban;while Sirius obeyed Harrys wishes, he observed that James would have been willing to take the risk.When Sirius was killed in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, Harry at first refused tobelieve he was dead. Harry was completely devastated by Siriuss death; for the following months, Harryavoided talking about Sirius if he could; whenever the subject came up, he would distract himself in someway to avoid joining the discussion. Very fortunately, Harry was able to move on with his life after a shortperiod of grieving, knowing that Sirius would not want him to shut himself away or crack up. When Harryprepared to sacrifice himself to Voldemort in 1998, Sirius was one of the spirits he summoned usingthe Resurrection Stone. Sirius assured Harry that dying was "quicker and easier" than falling asleep.Sirius also was the one who gave Harry his first toy broomstick, as a year old baby. In a letter to Sirius,Harrys mother thanked him and described James impression that Harry would be a "good Quidditchplayer." Sirius later gave Harry another broomstick, the Firebolt, as thirteen years worth of presentsfrom his godfather.Harry would name his eldest son after James and Sirius.Remus Lupin Edit Remus Lupin, his friend, protector and teacher. Added by Scrimgeour "Youre the best Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher weve ever had." —Harry trying to convince Remus not to resign.[src]
Harrys simple student-teacher relationship with Remus Lupin quickly developed into a strongfriendship, akin to the one that a kind, loving uncle and his favourite nephew would share.Harry first met Remus when he was an infant, and again in 1993 when Remus saved him fromthe Dementors on the Hogwarts Express. Remus had been appointed the Defence Against theDark Artsprofessor at Hogwarts that year, and soon became his favourite professor as well as amentor of sorts. It was suggested that Remus classes were how Harry discovered his talent for DefenceAgainst the Dark Arts. When Harry continued to be badly affected by Dementors, Remus agreed togive Harry private lessons to teach him the Patronus Charm. It was during these lessons that Harrydiscovered that Remus was one of his parents oldest, dearest friends. Although Remus attempted tomaintain a teacher-student relationship with Harry, he did act more as a close friend or a beloved uncle attimes, answering his questions patiently, sharing Butterbeer after a private lesson, assisting him inavoiding trouble withProfessor Snape, and even returning the Marauders Map to Harry once hewas no longer a professor. Harry, in turn, became deeply fond of Remus, and was extremely upset tohear of his resignation afterSeverus Snapeexposed him as a werewolf. He even attempted to tryand talk him into staying on at Hogwarts, but it was futile, though Remus told him that it had been a realpleasure teaching him, and assured him that they would meet again.The two indeed met again in the summer of 1995 when members of the Advance Guard ofthe Order of the Phoenixarrived to pick up Harry from Privet Drive. Although initially wary of intruders,Harry relaxed on learning of Remus presence in the group, indicating that he still trusted his fathers olddear friend despite a year without contact. During the Battle of the Department of Mysteries,Remus protected Harry and Neville Longbottom from an attack by Lucius Malfoy and saved Harryslife by preventing him from running into the Veil in the Death Chamber in an attempt to save hisgodfather, Sirius Black. "But you are normal. Youve just got a - a problem-." —Harry Potter to Remus Lupin regarding the latters lycanthropy[src] Lupin and Harry discussing problems in 1993. Added by OreadRemus undercover assignment with the werewolves prevented him from maintaining contact withHarry in the wake of his godfathers death, something about which he expressed regret. On the fewoccasions that they saw each other during Harrys sixth year, Harry was worried about Remusincreasingly haggard and gaunt appearance. He displayed a protective streak towards Remus,
expressing anger over his forced resignation from Hogwarts and the general perceptionof werewolves.In 1997, Harry was thrilled to hear of Remus marriage toNymphadora Tonks and was puzzled byLupins increasingly worried appearance. He was outraged when Remus temporarily left his wife for fearof their then unborn child becoming a werewolf. While Harry maintained his stance on their argument,he deeply regretted the harsh words he said to Remus in his anger. When Remus son TeddyLupinwas born, Harry was relieved that Remus had clearly forgiven him, and was overwhelmed butdelighted to be made Teddys godfather. Remus also spoke about Harry on Potterwatch, saying that ifHarry could hear him he would tell him to trust his instincts which were "nearly always right." This deeplyaffected Harry who was then informed by Ron that Lupin was back with Tonks, having apparently listenedto what Harry had said despite the way he said it. Harry Potter: "I didnt want you to die. Any of you. Im sorry — right after youd had your son... Remus, Im sorry-" Remus: "I am sorry too. Sorry I will never know him...but he will know why I died and I hope he will understand. I was trying to make a world in which he could live a happier life." — Harry speaks to Remus, James, Lily, and Sirius through the Resurrection Stone[src]Of all the people who died during the Battleof Hogwarts, Remus death, along with those of hiswife, Nymphadora Tonks, and Fred Weasley, were the ones that hit Harry the hardest. Remus wasone of the spirits that was summoned by the Resurrection Stone to speak to Harry and give him thesupport he needed as he walked to what he believed was his death, indicating the almost familial bondbetween Remus and Harry.In Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Harry wrote in the werewolf section that they"arent all bad," and Harry and Remus son, Teddy became very close after the war. Harry and hisfamily had dinner with Teddy four times a week and Harrys children hoped that Teddy would either bemarried into the Weasley-Potter family, or Harry would ask Teddy to move in with the Potters.Minerva McGonagall Edit "Potter, I will assist you to become an Auror if it is the last thing I do! If I have to coach you nightly, I will make sure you achieve the required results" —Minerva McGonagall[src]
Minerva McGonagall, his Head of House, teacher, friend and protector. Added by Pol 871Harry had a strong relationship with his Transfiguration teacher and Head ofHouse,Professor Minerva McGonagall. Though theirs was a typical student-teacher relationship for Harrysfirst three years at Hogwarts, after Harry was selected to become a Triwizard Champion, the sheer levelof danger he faced seemed to warm her to him. In Harrys fifth year, McGonagall urged Harry not togive Dolores Umbridge or the Ministry any more ammunition to use against him, and she later stoodup for him to Umbridge, promising to help Harry become an Auror if it was the last thing she did. Harry felta powerful surge of anger when Umbridge later gloated that Minerva was too ill to talk to anyone after Stunners.being hit in the chest with four simultaneousIn 1998, Harry was so infuriated with Amycus Carrow for spitting in McGonagalls face, that hesucceeded in using the Cruciatus Curse on theDeath Eater, agreeing with Bellatrix Lestrangesassertion that one had to "really mean it" in order to perform the curse effectively. McGonagall returnedHarrys devotion by arming Hogwarts on Harrys request, and then fighting Voldemort head on in the finalbattle. When Voldemort had Harrys seemingly dead body brought out from the Forest, Minerva gave aterrible cry, to rival those of Ron, Hermione, and Ginny. Professor McGonagall was like a strict and lovinggrandmother to Harry.Severus Snape Edit
Severus Snape, his teacher, protector and former enemy. Added by Snape06 "You have your mothers eyes" —Severus Snapes last words to Harry Potter before he died.During his years in school, Harrys relationship with Potions master Severus Snapewas nothingshort of deepest mutual loathing. When Harry first saw Snape in the Great Hall at Hogwarts, he got theinitial feeling that Snape disliked him; only after his first Potions lesson did Harry realise the resentmentdug much deeper. Harry soon learned that Snape saw Harry as a younger version of his father — aself-centred boy who enjoyed the attention paid to him, and was "so arrogant that criticism simplybounced off him."Harrys hatred of Snape reached its height in 1997 when he discovered that Snape had told Voldemortabout The Prophecy involving him, which led Harry to believe that Snape had betrayed his parents.Harry raged at Albus Dumbledore for trusting Snape, only to have Dumbledore silence him. Later thesame night, Snape killedDumbledore, which only seemed to confirm what Harry had come to believeabout his former Potions master.In 1998, Harry witnessed Voldemort order the death of Severus Snape, in an attempt to gain theallegiance of theElder Wand. Despite his hatred of his former teacher, he still felt sorry for the wayVoldemort had killed Snape without even feeling sorry for taking his life. As Voldemort left Snape mortallywounded by Nagini in the Shrieking Shack, Harry was able to obtain several memories thatcontained not only the truth about Snapes motives and unwavering allegiance to the Order of thePhoenix, but relayed a crucial message from Dumbledore. What Harry discovered about Snapespersistent love for Lily Evans also explained Snapes final act: he had instructed Harry to look at him, sohe could die looking into the eyes Harry inherited from his mother.By 2017, Harry considered Snape to be one of the bravest men he had ever known, and gavehis second son, who was the only one of his children to inherit Lilys eyes, the middle name"Severus."[HP7] Harry ensured that Snapes portrait eventually found its rightful place among Hogwartssprevious headmasters.Nymphadora Tonks Edit
Nymphadora Tonks, his friend and protector. Added by Auror205 "Wotcher, Harry!" —Tonks greets Harry[src]Harry and Nymphadora Tonks first met in 1995 when the Advance Guard came to transport Harryto Grimmauld Place. From there, she became one of Harrys most valuable allies and friend, and wasone of the five Order members who rescued Harry and his friends during the Battle of theDepartment of Mysteries. In 1996, she was the one who found Harry in the Hogwarts Express afterbeingPetrified, having his nose broken, and then concealed under his Invisibility cloak by DracoMalfoy. Their friendship grew for the next few years; Tonks felt sorry Harry wasnt been able to attendher wedding in 1997, though nine months later, Tonks and Remus asked Harry to be godfather to theirson,Teddy Lupin. During the Battle of Hogwarts, Tonks fought her aunt Bellatrix,who finallysucceeded in managing to kill her "blood traitor" niece. Tonkss death, along with that of her husbandand Fred Weasley, was among those that hit Harry the hardest.In honour of Tonks and her husbands memory, Harry helped Nymphadoras mother to raise TeddyLupin. When Harry saw his two sons off to the Hogwarts Express in 2017, James came runningback to his parents to announce that he had seen Teddy snogging Victoire Weasley, which may havemeant Teddy eventually became an official member of the extended Potter-Weasley family.Luna Lovegood Edit
Luna Lovegood, his close friend. Added by You-Know-Who Luna: "People expect you to have cooler friends than us." Harry: "You are cool. None of them was at the Ministry. They didn’t fight with me." Luna: "That’s a very nice thing to say." — Luna and Harry in 1996[src]Harry met Luna Lovegood, a Ravenclaw student one year below him at Hogwarts, in 1995, onthe Hogwarts Express. Although Harry found the younger witch rather strange, he was grateful whenshe told him that she believed his claim that Lord Voldemort had returned, as she seemed to be one ofthe few students who did. Harry and Luna became friendlier throughDumbledores Army, and afterthey fought together at the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, Luna comforted Harry over theloss of hisgodfather, telling him about her late mother. The following year, Harry defended Lunaand Neville Longbottom when Romilda Vane implied they were not worth spending time with, andhe later on invited Luna to attend Slughorns Christmas Party with him.In the prelude to the final battle, Luna aided Harry in his search for Ravenclaws Diadem, havingbeen the one to inform Harry of its existence in the first place, and she Stunned Alecto Carrow whenHarry was too shocked to move, which probably saved him from being held captiveuntil Voldemorts arrival, later when Harry was going to sacrifice himself, he realised that Luna was oneof his closest friends and one of the persons he will like to see before his death. After the Battle ofHogwarts, Luna was the only one who noticed that Harry wanted to get away from the victory party, andcreated a distraction so that he could go speak with Ron and Hermione in private. The two remainedfriends into adulthood, and Harry gave his daughter the middle name ―Luna‖ in honour of his friend.Dobby Edit "You shall not harm Harry Potter!" —Dobby protects Harry from Lucius Malfoy.[src]
Dobby, Harrys helpful friend. Added by Loony Luna22The House-elf Dobby became a vitally important figure in Harrys life, and their relationship played acrucial role in Harrys ultimate defeat of Lord Voldemort. Even before Harry freed Dobby from theslavery of the Malfoy family, in 1993, Dobby did all he could to protect Harry from impending danger,and later displayed the strength of his house-elf magic to protect Harry from Lucius Malfoy. For thenext several years, Dobby was appointed to work at the kitchen of Hogwarts Castle in the paid serviceof Headmaster Albus Dumbledore, though even as a free elf, his loyalty always laid foremost withHarry. In 1994, Dobby provided Harry with Gillyweed for the second task of the TriwizardTournament, and the next year, told Harry about the Room of Requirement, whichbecame Dumbledores Armys base of operations. Harry: "Dobby, no dont die, dont die -" Dobby: "Harry... Potter..." — Dobbys last words, said to Harry.[src]In 1998, Harry, Ron, Hermione, Luna, Dean Thomas, Garrick Ollivander and thegoblin Griphook were captured and taken hostage at the Malfoy Manor. Alerted to their whereaboutsby Aberforth Dumbledore, Dobby rescued the hostages in two groups, first apparating Dean, Lunaand Ollivander to Shell Cottage, then returning to do the same for Hermione, Ron, Harry and Griphook.Dobby dropped a chandelier on Bellatrix Lestrange to release Hermione from being held at knife-point, giving Ron the opportunity to take a wand and disapparate with Hermione. Bellatrix threw the samesilver knife at Dobby, mortally wounding him, just as he disapparated with Harry and Griphook. Uponarriving at Shell Cottage, Harry discovered Dobbys wound and cried out for help as Dobby died in Harrysarms. Harry dug a grave without using magic and held a small funeral for the elf in the garden of ShellCottage. Dobbys epitaph read "Here lies Dobby, A Free Elf". After the funeral, Harry remembered theone Albus Dumbledore had, and thought that Dobby deserved one just as grand.It was the grief Harry felt for Dobbys death that ultimately grounded him, ridding Harry of the "weird,obsessive longing" to find the Elder Wand and the resentment for how little he felt Albus Dumbledore
had actually disclosed during their time together. While digging Dobbys grave, Harry reflected on allDumbledore had said about love, and all he had foreseen, and replaced his trust in the late Headmaster,making the conscious decision to continue his pursuit of Horcruxes, and not Hallows.Neville Longbottom Edit Neville: "All right, Harry. Youre okay, are you?" Harry: "Im fine. Thanks, Neville." Neville: "Were all going to keep fighting, Harry. You know that?" — Harry Potter and Neville Longbottom during the Battle of Hogwarts[src] Neville Longbottom, his close friend. Added by Patr0nusNeville Longbottom became Harrys room mate in 1991, in their first year atHogwarts. In 1996,Harry learned that The Prophecy that prompted Lord Voldemort to target his parents could have beenreferring to Neville. Though Harry sympathised with the fact that Nevilles parents had been tortured intoinsanity by Bellatrix, Rodolphus and Rabastan Lestrange, and Barty Crouch Jr, he spent part of thejourney to Hogwarts prior to his sixth year pondering how things could have been different if Voldemorthad chosen to attack Neville, and he had become the "one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord"instead of Harry.Harry and Neville didnt become particularly close until their fifth year at school, when Neville took partin Dumbledores Army, an organisation that Harry led in opposition to Dolores Umbridge. Nevillebecame highly devoted to the D.A., which, in turn, helped Neville not only improve his magical abilities,but gain badly needed confidence and incredible courage. He fought alongside Harry in the Battle ofthe Department of Mysteries, where Neville saved Harrys life from the Death Eater WaldenMacnair, and in 1997, was one of only three D.A. members who still checked their Enchantedcoin enough to receive Hermiones call for help prior to the Battle of the Astronomy Tower.
Harry and Neville Added by Hansolo2In 1998, when Harry, Ron and Hermione were on the run, Neville re-formed Dumbledores Armywith Ginny Weasley and Luna Lovegood, in resistance against DeathEaters Alecto and Amycus Carrow. Neville spoke out against their anti-Muggle rhetoric and habitof using the Cruciatus Curse on students, regardless of the consequences, saying he noticed it alwayshelped give people hope when Harry did that. When Harry returned, Neville deferred to his leadership andsummoned the rest of Dumbledores Army (who, in turn, contacted the Order of the Phoenix) believingHarry was there to lead a revolt. Harry and Neville fought together throughout the Battle of Hogwarts,and just before Harry sacrificed himself, he left Neville with the instruction to kill Nagini, Voldemortssnake and last remaining Horcrux. When everyone believed Harry to be dead, Neville openly defiedVoldemort, who tried to burn him alive with the Sorting Hat but failed due to Harrys Sacrificialprotection. Using the opportunity given to him by the sudden arrival of reinforcements, Nevillecompleted the task Harry gave to him; he drew Gryffindors Sword from the Sorting Hat and slewNagini, destroying the last Horcrux and rendering Voldemort mortal, thus allowing Harry to finally kill him.Nineteen years after the battle, Neville was the Herbology teacher at Hogwarts, and taught Harry andGinnys children, James and Albus, they both remain close friends in adulthood, to the point where Ginnyasked James to give Neville their love, which horrified James because although he knew Neville well, atschool hes Professor Longbottom
Fleur Weasley (née Delacour), his sister-in-law. Added by Cavalier OneFleur Delacour Edit Harry: "Im sorry. I never meant you to have to deal with all of this." Fleur: "Arry, you saved my sisters life. I do not forget." — Harry Potter and Fleur at Shell Cottage[src]Harrys first opinion of Fleur Delacour in 1994 was that she was a very beautiful girl who looked likea Veela. Though Fleur initially paid him as little attention as she did most of the younger Hogwartsstudents, after the second task, when Harry saved Fleurs younger sister Gabrielle Delacour, Fleurwas much kinder to Harry in her gratitude. Fleur met Harry again at the Burrow, in 1996, when Fleur wasabout to marry Bill Weasley, the eldest brother of Harrys best friend, Ron. After the Skirmish atMalfoy Manor, Harry and his friends lived with Bill and Fleur for roughly one month at Shell Cottage,where Fleur cared for them all, much like a mother or an older sister. Fleur eventually became Harryssister-in-law, after Harry married Ginny Weasley. Harrys godson, Ted Lupin, was seen kissingFleurs daughter, Victoire Weasley, at Kings Cross Station in 2017.Draco Malfoy Edit
Draco Malfoy, his school bully and arch-rival. Added by Slytherin7thyear Draco: "You’re dead, Potter." Harry: "Funny, you’d think I’d have stopped walking around." Draco: "You’re going to pay. I’m going to make you pay for what you’ve done to my father… You can’t land my father in prison." — Draco and Harry after the Battle of the Department of Mysteries.[src] Harry Saving Draco from Fiendfyre in the Room of Requirement Added by CrunchingCrayonsDraco Malfoy became Harrys rival almost from the moment they met at Madam Malkins Robesfor All Occasions inDiagon Alley. Draco came from a family that believed strongly in the importanceof blood purity, thus he considered himself superior to most people, bullying and insulting Muggle-borns and Gryffindors in particular. He was bitterly jealous of Harrys seemingly effortless heroism.Draco bit off more than he could chew in his ambition to be like his father, Lucius Malfoy, when hebecame a Death Eater at a young age; to punish his father, Voldemort ordered Draco toassassinate Albus Dumbledore, threatening his parents lives if he failed. Although he let severalDeath Eaters into Hogwarts in 1997, Draco found himself unwilling to actually go through with killingDumbledore, even when given the opportunity to do so. A year later, when Harry was brought to theMalfoy Manor to be handed over to the Dark Lord, Draco was very reluctant to identify him, and during theconfrontation that ensured, Harry forcefully disarmed him, winning both his Hawthorn wand and theunknowingly, the Elder Wand. During the Battle of Hogwarts, Harry, Ron and Hermione saved his lifetwice: against Crabbes Fiendfyre and from a masked Death Eater. Because of his familys switching ofsides during the Battle of Hogwarts, Draco was not sent to Azkaban for his crimes. By 2017, he
was married and had a son. Draco saw Harry, Ginny, Hermione and Ron at Kings Cross Station whensending their children to Hogwarts, where he gave them a curt nod. While Draco and Harry eventuallymade peace, they never became friends. It is also unknown if Harry ever gave Draco his original wandback, as Harry won its allegiance and it is never stated how a wand that has been won behaves towardshis original master afterwards.Cho Chang Edit "Well, obviously, she’s feeling very sad, because of Cedric dying. Then I expect she’s feeling confused because she liked Cedric and now she likes Harry, and she can’t work out who she likes best. Then she’ll be feeling guilty, thinking it’s an insult to Cedric’s memory to be kissing Harry at all…" —Hermione on Cho Chang after the latter’s kiss with Harry[src]In his earlier years at Hogwarts, Harry was attracted to ChoChang, a popular girlin Ravenclaw House and seeker of their Quidditch team. During the TriwizardTournament in 1994, Harry plucked up the courage to ask her to theYule Ball, but was disappointedto find that she had already agreed to go with Cedric Diggory, though she seemed to genuinely feelbad about having to turn him down. Cho and Harry Added by ArthurCh8In their next year, following Cedrics tragic death, Harry and Cho grew closer, eventually sharing a kissunder the mistletoe. However, Cho was still mourning Cedric, and became unreasonably jealous ofHarrys friendship with Hermione, which, compounded with Harry’s inexperience with girls, put a strain ontheir relationship. The last straw was Chos friend Marietta Edgecombes betrayal ofDumbledoresArmy to Dolores Umbridge; Cho defended Marietta and called the jinx Hermione had placed on theD.A. parchment a "horrible trick," both of which angered Harry. The two stopped speaking to one another,and Cho soon began dating Michael Corner. However, any animosity seemed to have vanishedby 1998, as Cho was among the former D.A. members who returned to participate in the Battle ofHogwarts. Just before the battle, she offered to show Harry the Ravenclaw common room, and seemeddisappointed when this offer was fiercely denied by Ginny Weasley.Bellatrix Lestrange Edit "SHE KILLED SIRIUS! SHE KILLED HIM - ILL KILL HER!" —Harry on Bellatrix Lestrange, after she killed Sirius Black [src]
Bellatrix going to look back at Harry in the Battle of the Department ofMysteries Added by TeamBellatrixHarry felt contemptuous of Bellatrix Lestrange from the moment he learned of her torturing of Aliceand Frank Longbottom, his eyes immediately drawn to her picture wherever he saw it. Throughouttheir encounter in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, Bellatrix goaded Harry with sarcasticbaby-talk, mocking Harry for falling for Lord Voldemorts ploy and travelling to the Ministry ofMagic to save his non-present godfather. She abandoned the baby-talk, however, becoming incensedwhen Harry used Voldemorts name- a mark of deep disrespect in Bellatrixs eyes.After Bellatrix killed Sirius Black, Harry seemed to hate her as much as, if not more than, he didVoldemort, chasing her into the Atrium of the Ministry in a fit of rage. He even had to restrain himselffrom destroying her wand, which he managed to procure during the Skirmish at Malfoy Manor.Bellatrix would later murder both Nymphadora Tonks and Dobby the house-elf in 1998, alsonearly killing Ginny Weasley during the second round of the Battle of Hogwarts. In the latterincident, Harry, who had been hurrying towards Voldemort in the Great Hall, noticed the danger toGinnys life and made a beeline for Bellatrix instead. He was beaten to her, however, by MollyWeasleys abrupt intervention.Though she spoke disparagingly of the fact that Harry was a Half-blood, and vehemently denied Harrysclaims that Voldemort was the same, Bellatrix despised Harry mostly out of loyalty to her master, the manwith whom she had developed an obsessive infatuation. As such, Bellatrix more or less hated anyonewho challenged or threatened Lord Voldemort. Regardless of his feelings, Harry recognized thatBellatrix made a fearsome opponent; while he hated her as his godfathers killer, he acknowledged thatshe was also a witch of "prodigious" skill and absolutely no conscience.Peter Pettigrew Edit
Peter Pettigrew, who betrayed his parents. Added by Jessica160 "Youre going to kill me? After I saved your life? You owe me, Wormtail..." —Harry to Pettigrew, reminding him that he had saved his life[src]Harry first heard about PeterPettigrew in 1993, and he believed Pettigrew to have been a hero whohad dared to confront the man who betrayedJames and Lily Potter, and been tragically killed as aresult.After SiriusBlack escaped from from Azkaban that same year, the alleged convict made his way toHogwarts, supposedly with the goal of killing Harry in a crazed bid to bring Lord Voldemort back topower. Towards the end of the school year, Black managed to pull Ron Weasley throughthe Whomping Willow and in to the Shrieking Shack, followed closely by HermioneGranger and an incensed Harry. When they were joined shortly after byRemus Lupin, he and Siriusrevealed a completely different truth: Pettigrew had been the one to betray Harrys parents, and hadsubsequently framed Sirius by pretending to confront him, then faked his own death by cutting off one ofhis own fingers and hiding in his unregistered Animagus form as Rons pet rat, Scabbers. AlthoughHarry was disgusted by Pettigrews disloyalty and cowardice, he convinced Sirius and Remus not tobecome murderers, and instead force Pettigrew to face justice in the hands of the Dementors. ThoughPettigrew escaped, making it impossible to prove Sirius Blacks innocence, Harrys decision to spare hislife was not fruitless: Pettigrew owed Harry a Life debt. Peter pardoning to Harry Added by Yan 19941Pettigrew, who had fled to Albania and sought protection from Sirius in the service of Lord Voldemort,returned to Great Britain in 1994. After Harry and Cedric Diggory were transported to LittleHangleton Graveyard following the end of the Triwizard Tournament, Pettigrew murdered Cedric,bound Harry to the grave of Tom Riddle Sr., and concocted a potion using the senior Riddles bones,one of Pettigrews own hands, and Harrys blood, to return Voldemort to physical form. When instructedby Voldemort to give Harry back his wand, Pettigrew did so without looking at him.
In 1998, during the Skirmish at Malfoy Manor, Peter Pettigrews life debt was repaid; Harry remindedhim that he had saved his life, and Pettigrew momentarily hesitated in the midst of attempting to stranglehim. As a result, the silver hand Voldemort had made for Pettigrew, as a reward for sacrificing his own,saw the hesitation as sign of weakness, and turned against him. Though Ron and Harry both tried to savehim, the hand ultimately strangled Pettigrew to death.Dolores Umbridge Edit Professor Umbridge Added by Greekpimp "As I told you once before Mr. Potter, naughty children deserve to be punished." —Umbridge speaking to Harry.[src]Harry disliked Senior Undersecretary to the Minister for Magic,Dolores Umbridge, from themoment he first laid eyes on her, which was shortly before she voted in favour of Harrys undeservedexpulsion from Hogwarts. In the summer of 1995, Umbridge sent two Dementors after Harry and hiscousin, Dudley Dursley, in an attempt to silence Harry from contradicting the Ministry of Magicsofficial position maintaining that Lord Voldemort had not returned to power. Harry was forced to usea Patronus to defend himself and Dudley from the Dementors, which resulted in Harry being summonedto the Ministry on the charge of using under age magic; if convicted, he would have been expelled fromHogwarts. Umbridge took part in Harry’s prosecution and spoke in favour of his conviction, but Harry wascleared due to Albus Dumbledore’s defence, as well as the impartiality of Amelia Bones andseveral other members of the Wizengamot.Harry soon encountered Umbridge again when she was appointed Defence Against the DarkArts teacher at Hogwarts, by the Ministry. Harry was outspoken in his outrage at the Ministrys denial ofVoldemorts return and their refusal to allow Hogwarts students to practice defensive magic, whichUmbridge sadistically responded to by making him carve the words "I must not tell lies," into the back ofhis own hand using a Blood Quill. Umbridge clearly favoured Slytherin students, and presumablythose who had ties to the ministry in particular, as demonstrated by her allowing the SlytherinQuidditch team to re-form before any other, following the passage ofEducational Decree NumberTwenty-Four, and later giving Harry and the Weasley twins lifetime bans fromplayingQuidditch after they attacked Draco Malfoy. Umbridge monitored all incoming and outgoingmail, resulting in the injury of Harry’s owl, Hedwig, and she made it nearly impossible for
Harry, Ron and Hermione to visit Hagrid at hishut. When Harry publicly recounted witnessingVoldemorts resurrection in an interview with Rita Skeeter, published in The Quibbler, Umbridgebanned him from Hogsmeade trips. One by one, Umbridge was robbing Harry of his reasons to want tostay at Hogwarts.In order to offer students the practical defensive education Umbridge was denying them, Harry formedand ledDumbledores Army. When they were betrayed to Umbridge by one of their members, Harrywas nearly expelled from Hogwarts until Dumbledore convinced Cornelius Fudge that Harry onlyformed the organisation on his orders. Dumbledore was forced to leave Hogwarts to avoid being sentto Azkaban, after which Umbridge took the position of Headmistress and the students took to makingthings as difficult for her as possible. Umbridge attempted to have Hagrid arrested after a coupleof Nifflers were released in her office, despite his obvious innocence, which resulted in his going on therun and Professor McGonagall being seriously injured and temporarily incapacitated atSt MungosHospital. With seemingly no adults left for him to turn to, Harry attempted to use Umbridge’s fire, theonly fire not being monitored by the Ministry, to check on Sirius Black, after having a vision that Siriuswas being tortured in the Department of Mysteries. Remembering that Severus Snape was, infact, a member of the Order of the Phoenix, Harry gave Snape the cryptic message, "hes got Padfootat the place where its hidden!" Umbridge nearly used the Cruciatus Curse on Harry in order to makehim explain his statement, when Hermione intervened and tricked Umbridge into believing the D.A. hadbeen building a weapon for Dumbledore in the Forbidden Forest. When Harry, Hermione andUmbridge were confronted by a herd of centaurs, Umbridges angry diatribe-- in which she referred tothe centaurs as "creatures of near-human intelligence" and "filthy half-breeds"-- resulted in her beingcarried off into the depths of the forest.After the Ministry finally acknowledged Voldemort’s return to power, Umbridge was removed fromHogwarts. However, Harry was furious to learn later that year that Umbridge was still working for theMinistry. When Voldemort became the de facto Minister for Magic, with an imperiused PiusThicknesse as his puppet, Umbridge, knowingly or not, immediately showed sympathy for his agendaby taking part in the hunt for Harry Potter and branding him "Undesirable Number 1." When Harry,disguised as Albert Runcorn by way of Polyjuice Potion, met Umbridge again in 1997, she hadbecome Head of the Muggle-Born Registration Commission, and was cruelly interrogating and"trying" innocent Muggle-born wizards and witches, before sentencing them to Azkaban for "stealingmagic." When Umbridge taunted a Muggle-born witch by claiming Salazar Slytherins Locket was afamily heirloom and proof of her relation to the pure-blood Selwyn family, Harry Stunned Umbridgein a fit of anger. Hermione replaced the locket with a decoy, after which she, Ron, and Harry proceededto free all the Muggle-borns awaiting interrogation.After the Second Wizarding War, Umbridge was given a life sentence in Azkaban.Hedwig Edit "No...NO! Hedwig...Hedwig..."
—Harry to Hedwig, after her death[src] Hedwig, his loyal, loving pet owl. Added by SmonoccoHedwig was the Snowy Owl Hagrid bought Harry for his eleventh birthday, from Eeylops OwlEmporium in Diagon Alley. Hedwig was often Harrys only companion during the lonely holidays hespent with the Dursleys, and the bond that developed between them was a close one. Though Hedwigwas usually very affectionate with Harry, which she showed by gently nibbling his ear or fingers, shewasnt above snubbing him out of jealousy or nipping him a bit harder than usual on the rare occasions hesnapped at her. Hedwig was also highly intelligent; she understood perfectly when Harry asked her topeck Ron and Hermione until they responded to him, and even flew, completely of her own accord, towhere Hermione was on holiday in France, to ensure that Harry received a gift for his thirteenth birthday.In 1997, Harry was completely grief-stricken after Hedwig was struck by a Killing Curse duringthe Battle over Little Whinging.Alastor Moody Edit Alastor Moody, his protector and friend. Added by Peeperman "Dont put your wand into your back pocket! Better wizards then you have lost buttocks from it!" —Alastor Moody to Harry Potter[src]Harry first saw the real Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody shortly after Barty Crouch Jr. was revealed tohave been keeping Moody imprisoned in his own trunk, using his hair for Polyjuice Potion, and takingMoodys place as temporary Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher at Hogwarts for most ofthe 1994–1995 school year.
The real Moody brought the Advance Guard of the Order of the Phoenix toPrivet Drive in 1995,to safely transport Harry to the Orders headquarters, and Sirius Blacks ancestral home, at 12Grimmauld Place. As Harry got to know Moody through his time spent around the Order, Moodyproved every bit the great, albeit incredibly paranoid, wizard he was reputed to be. When Moody waskilled by Voldemort during the Battle over Little Whinging, Harry was shocked and horrified by theabrupt end of such a skilled Auror, and shared a drink in his honour with the rest of the Order. "Mad-Eye dead; it could not be… Mad-Eye, so tough, so brave, the consummate survivor…" —Harry thinking about Mad Eyes death[src]When Harry, Ron and Hermione infiltrated the Ministry of Magic in 1997, to steal SalazarSlytherins Locket fromDolores Umbridge, Harry found Moodys magical eye lodged in the doorto Umbridges office. Harry reclaimed the eye, though doing so ended up alerting the Ministry to thebreach in security, and later buried it under "the oldest, most gnarled and resilient-looking" tree he couldfind, marking the spot with a small cross. Little though it was, Harry was certain Moody would prefer it tohaving his eye put to use spying for Dolores Umbridge.Cedric Diggory Edit Cedric: "You saved my life, Harry. Take the cup." Harry: "Well take it together." — Cedric and Harry about who should win the Triwizard Tournament[src] Harry with Cedric Diggory Added by Cavalier OneHarry and Cedric Diggory, were, for better or worse, rivals throughout Harrysthird and fourth yearsat Hogwarts. As Cedric was seeker of the Hufflepuff Quidditch team, one of their first encountersinvolved Cedric catching thesnitch and securing the win for his team, while Harry fell offhis broomstickafter one of the Dementors guarding the school found its way onto the Quidditch field.The next year, when both Harry and Cedric were declared Champions in theTriwizard Tournament,Cedric was the schools obvious favourite, as most of the students believed Harry had entered thecompetition illegally. Though the negative attention abated slightly after Harrys stellar performance in thefirst task, Cedric also beat Harry to the punch in asking Cho Chang to theYule Ball. Though Cedricremained good-natured and gracious throughout, Harry couldnt help but feel jealous, and even slightlyinsecure about the fact that Cedric was clearly talented and "looked the part" of a Champion.Regardless, when Hagrid showed Harry that the Tournaments first task would involve facing dragons,Harry felt compelled to help Cedric, realising he alone would be unprepared, as both Heads of other the
two competing schools had seen the dragons as well. Cedric reciprocated by helping Harry with thesecond task, and during the third, each had occasion to save the others life. As, such, when they reachedthe Triwizard Cup at the same time, they agreed to take it together; both boys were transportedto Little Hangleton Graveyard, and Harry watched in horror as Peter Pettigrew murdered Cedricon Voldemorts command to "kill the spare." When Cedrics ghostly image emerged from Voldemortswand, which was locked in Priori Incantatem with Harrys, he asked Harry to take his body back to hisparents, and Harry risked his life to do so.Cedrics death haunted Harrys dreams well into the summer, as Dudley mockingly asked him if "Cedric"was his boyfriend, and enabled Harry to see Thestrals for the first time at the beginning of his fifth year.Kreacher Edit Kreacher, Harrys house-elf. Added by Pol 871 "Kreacher...er... I would like to give you this..." —Harry, giving Regulus Blacks locket to Kreacher[src]Kreacher was the last in a line of house-elves who served the Black family, inherited by SiriusBlack, and eventually by Harry. In his fanatical loyalty to the House of Black, Kreacher mimicked thefamilys Pure-blood supremacist views, and as such, despised Sirius for being a "blood traitor" and forsupposedly breaking his mothers heart. By extension, he hated, and muttered profanities about,anyone associated with Sirius, particularly Harry and the motley crew of blood statuses that made up therest of the Order of the Phoenix.For his part, Sirius saw too much of the family he hated in Kreacher, and had no problem treatingKreacher with utter disdain. After the Battleof the Department of Mysteries, Harry learned thatKreacher had helped trick Harry into going to the Ministry of Magic by pretending Sirius was not atGrimmauld Place when Harry tried to find him, and thus helped bring about Siriuss end. In his will, Siriusleft everything he owned to Harry, including Kreacher. As Harry wanted nothing to do with the house-elf,but couldnt risk setting him free and letting any information Kreacher had about the Order fall into thehands of the Lestranges or the Malfoys, he sent Kreacher to work in the Hogwarts kitchens.In 1997, when Harry, Ron and Hermione hid in 12 Grimmauld Place at the start of their hunt forVoldemortsHorcruxes, they discovered that "R.A.B" stood for Regulus Arcturus Black, and Harryremembered actually having seen and tried to open Salazar Slytherins Locket in the summerof 1995. They asked Kreacher if he knew where the locket came from and what had become of it, andthe house-elf was forced to reveal all that had happened between him, Voldemort, and Regulus Black;when Regulus was still a Death Eater, Voldemort told him he required the service of a house-elf, and
Regulus volunteered Kreacher for the job. Voldemort took Kreacher to a seaside cave, where heordered Kreacher to drink an emerald green potion. Kreacher was tortured by the potion, and thenleft to die in the hands of the Inferi; he was only able to survive and Disapparate out of the cavebecausehis master called him home. Regulus became disillusioned by Voldemorts ill-treatment ofKreacher, and soon after, deduced both the existence of Voldemorts horcruxes and the fact that themagic that binds a house-elf to obey their master would supersede the caves magical protections.Regulus then had Kreacher return with him to the cave, but instead of forcing Kreacher to suffer theeffects of the potion again, ordered Kreacher to leave the cave with the locket, and destroy it as soon ashe could. To protect Kreacher and his family, Regulus forbade Kreacher to tell any member of the Houseof Black what had happened. Kreacher took the locket and attempted to destroy it, but not beforewatching in horror as Regulus drank the potion himself, and was killed by the Inferi.Though he initially didnt want to admit it, Harry realised that Kreacher playing a crucial role in leadingSirius to his death was something that could have, and should have, been avoided. When Kreacherfinished his story, Harry, with Hermiones guidance, made an effort to show the distraught house-elfkindness, comforting him about Regulus death and even giving him Regulus fake locket; the miserable,wretched house-elf they had known became almost unrecognisable. Kreacher told the triothat Mundungus Fletcher had taken the locket, and gladly obeyed Harrys order--which Harry made apoint of phrasing as a request--to find Fletcher and bring him to Grimmauld Place.From that point on, Kreacher happily tidied up the house and fed the trio, until they accidentally brokethe Fidelius Charm on 12 Grimmauld Place, and were forced to flee. Kreacher later led the Hogwartshouse-elves, in the name of Harry, "defender of house-elves", and brave Regulus Black, in a ferventattack on the invading Death Eaters during the Battle of Hogwarts.Horace Slughorn Edit "Please... dont think badly of me when you see it... youve no idea how he was like, even then..." —Slughorn to Harry in 1997[src] Horace Slughorn, his teacher and friend giving the memory that allowedHarry to defeat Lord Voldemort. Added by Jayce CarverHarry first met HoraceSlughorn in 1996, when he accompanied Albus Dumbledore in attempting topersuade the old Potions master to come out of retirement. From the start, Harry was unsure how hefelt about Slughorn; though he was clearly not someone with even the slightest inclination towardbecoming a Death Eater, he seemed wholly more superficial and self-serving than the likes of people in
the Order and most of Harrys other professors. Slughorn had a habit of nurturing and promoting studentswho would allow him to benefit from his connections to them later on; on the other hand, he seemed totake into account genuine merit as much status within the wizarding community, as he told Harry that hismother, who had no connections at all as a Muggle-born witch, was one of his all time favourite students.Though he resisted, Slughorn ultimately could not pass up the opportunity to "collect" Harry, nor could hedeny that there was no safer place to be than where ever Dumbledore was. Horace Slughorn resumed hispost as Potions Master, and made quick work of inviting several choice students (which included GinnyWeasley, when he saw her perform an excellent Bat-Bogey Hex on Zacharias Smith, andlater Hermione, when he saw that she was all around brilliant) in addition to Harry, to be a part of his"Slug Club."In due course, Harry realised that Dumbledore had not just wanted Slughorn back at Hogwarts becausehe needed to fill a position. During one of their private lessons, Dumbledore showed Harrya memory that belonged to Horace Slughorn, in which Slughorn was chatting with a groupof Slytherin boys, including a young Tom Riddle. Riddle had apparently gifted Slughorn hisfavourite Crystallised pineapple, was being being charming, and generally seemed to be building upto something. Indeed, when the other boys left, Riddle stayed behind, and slowly but surely made his wayto his point; he wanted to know what Slughorn knew about Horcruxes. The room suddenly got hazy,and a voice that belonged to Slughorn but was clearly inorganic reprimanded Riddle for asking such thing,before the memory abruptly ended.Dumbledore told Harry that original version of the modified memory would be of vital importance inunderstanding exactly what destroying Voldemort would entail, and tasked Harry with retrieving it. Asidefrom simply being "Harry Potter," Harry had three things that would help him do what even Dumbledoreapparently could not: a reputation with Slughorn as a excellent potioneer, courtesy of the Half-BloodPrince, the vial of liquid luck he had won, also courtesy of the Prince, and Slughorns fondness forHarrys own mother. A combination of all those things, as well as a healthy dose of Mead and theopportunity to collect a few vials of Acromantula venom, allowed Harry to finally collect the memorythat confirmed what Dumbledore had suspected Voldemort had done to travel "farther down the path toimmortality than anyone else": created not just one, but several Horcruxes.Though it seemed as if Slughorn had fled with the rest of the Slytherins prior to the start of the Battle ofHogwarts, he soon returned with reinforcements from Hogsmeade. During the final battle in the GreatHall, Slughorn displayed his immense skill and courage by taking on Voldemort directly, duelling himalongside Minerva McGonagall and Kingsley Shacklebolt.Dumbledores Army Edit "Every great wizard in history has started out as nothing more than what we are now: students. If they can do it, why not us?" —Harry Potter[src]
Some members of Dumbledores Army. Added by Kevin51340By the summer of 1995, the Ministry of Magic was in stubborn denial ofVoldemorts return,and Cornelius Fudge, whether out of self-delusion or genuine paranoia, seemed to suspect AlbusDumbledore may have been making false claims as a pretext for mobilising the students of HogwartsSchool of Witchcraft and Wizardry in a coup against Fudges administration. As such, the Ministrysaw fit to appoint one of its own to fill a vacancy in the Hogwarts faculty; at the start of the 1995–1996school year, Dolores Umbridgewas announced as the schools new Defence Against the DarkArts professor, and later, the first and only known Hogwarts High Inquisitor.As Umbridge steadily asserted her authority into nearly every aspect of life at Hogwarts-- from refusing toallow her D.A.D.A. students anything beyond a basic theoretical education and disbanding allstudent organisations, clubs, societies, and teams, to enforcing a unique form of corporalpunishment-- most of the residents of Hogwarts quickly turned against her.Harry was the most heatedly vocal among her opposition, followed closely by Hermione Granger, whohad been the first to notice and question the fact that Umbridges outlined curriculum did not seem toinclude the actual use of defensive magic. The two of them, along with Ron Weasley,founded Dumbledores Army (so named to mock "the Ministrys worst fear") to secretly providestudents a practical defensive education. When an unexpectedly high number of students arrived atthe Hogs Head pub for the introductory meeting of the D.A., Harry suspected that many of theattendees were only interested in hearing the details of Cedric Diggorys death. However, nearly all ofthe members worked in earnest to improve their duelling skills, crediting their marked successes toHarrys effective teaching, and many were eventually able to produce corporeal Patronuses underHarrys tuition.The organisation was disbanded in 1996, when Marietta Edgecombe gave into pressure from herparents and Umbridge to betray the location of the D.A.s secret meetings, which nearly resulted in theexpulsion of all of the members. Dumbledore ultimately took the blame (citing the fact that it was called"Dumbledores Army, not Potters"), and overpowered several Ministry officials to avoid beingsubsequently sent to Azkaban.Only Neville Longbottom, Luna Lovegood, and Ginny Weasley continued to checktheir Enchanted coins and were able to answer Hermione and Rons call prior to the Battle of theAstronomy Tower. Nevertheless, all of the former members, aside from Marietta Edgecombeand Zacharias Smith, reunited when the D.A. was re-formed in 1997, co-led by Neville, Ginny andLuna in Harry, Ron, and Hermiones absence, and fought together in the Battle of Hogwarts.
Order of the Phoenix Edit "I want to join! If Voldemorts raising an army, then I want to fight!" —Harry Potter[src] The original Order of the Phoenix. Added by MorsmordreHarry first heard about the Orderof the Phoenix in 1995, a year after Lord Voldemorts return. TheOrder of the Phoenix was an organisation founded and led by Albus Dumbledore in opposition to LordVoldemort and his Death Eaters during the First Wizarding War, and was reinstated at the startof the Second. Most of the Order members worked to the best of their ability to protect Harry, at greatpersonal risk, throughout the Second War, for which Harry came to view many of them much like asurrogate extended family. Aberforth Dumbledore, his protector. Added by Oiv8 "Thank you! You saved our lives!" —Harry to Aberforth after he saved his, Ron and Hermiones lives [src]Aberforth was Albus Dumbledores younger brother. Though Harry, Ron and Hermione had knownhim for years as the owner of the Hogs Head, they didnt officially meet him or learn his true identitytill 1998, when Harry, Ron and Hermione apparated outside of Aberforths pub, in Hogsmeade. Harryhad read about Aberforth in The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore, a book Rita Skeeter hadwritten, which described Aberforth as unlettered, rude, and bitter for having lived in the shadow of his Caterwaulingelder brother. When the trio apparated outside of the Hogs Head, they set off aCharm set by Death Eaters. As the three were hidden beneath Harrys Invisibility cloak, the DeathEaters used Dementors to smoke them out; the Death Eaters recognised Harrys stag Patronus, but
Aberforth claimed it was he who had set off the Caterwauling charm, and that the Patronus had actuallybeen a goat.Upon taking refuge in the Pub, the trio discovered Aberforth had saved their lives once before; he hadbeen able to send Dobby to save them from the Malfoy Manor after Harry called to him through thebroken shards of the Two-way mirror, as Aberforth had bought Sirius mirror from MundungusFletcher. Aberforth advised Harry to take Ron and Hermione away from Hogsmeade, and to savehimself. He told them about his family life, and that his sister,Ariana, had been so traumatised afterbeing attacked by three Muggle boys, that she became unable to control her magical abilities. He alsotold them why his father had been imprisoned in Azkaban, and about the events leading up to thedeaths of his mother and sister. Though Harry understood, or at least sympathised with, Aberforthsbitterness, he echoed Albus sentiments by saying "sometimes youve got to think about the greatergood!" Harry then informed Aberforth that, despite what he believed of his brother, Albus had never beenfree of what Gellert Grindelwald had done to Aberforth or what had happened to Ariana, referring toall Harry had heard Albus saying under the effects of the Drink of Despair in the Horcrux cave. Afterreceiving this insight into his brothers mind, Aberforth showed the trio the secret passage to the Roomof Requirement concealed behindArianas portrait.Harry first met Kingsley Shacklebolt when he and the rest of the Advance Guard arrived at PrivetDrive in 1995. Kingsley was an Auror who believed in equality and fairness for all wizards,witches, and Muggles. He later saved countless lives by sending his Patronus to warn the attendeesof the Weasley-Delacour Wedding that the Ministry had fallen, and with it, the protectionssurrounding The Burrow. After the Second Wizarding War, Kingsley becameMinister for Magic.Harry had only read Elphias Doges account of his friendship with Albus Dumbledore in their youth,until the wedding of Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour, when they had a discussion about Dumbledorespast. Harry, who was beginning to doubt how well he had really known the late Headmaster, was unsurehow to feel about Doges insistence that he not "let" his memories of Dumbledore be tainted.Before Harry had even known he was a wizard, Dedalus Diggle had met and even publicly bowed to abemused, young Harry, much to the Dursleys confusion and disgust. In 1997, Diggle and HestiaJones took the Dursleys into hiding under the Orders protection from Voldemort and the Death Eaters.Hestia was furious when she realised how little Harrys Uncle and Aunt seemed to know or care abouthim, and was unimpressed by Dudleys attempt at reconciliation. Though Harry was mostly amused byDudleys declaration that he didnt consider Harry a "waste of space," he probably appreciated Hestiasindignation on his behalf all the same.Harry thought Arabella Figg was just his odd, cat-loving neighbour, until 1995, when he learned shewas a Squib, and a member of the Order. She was outraged to learn that Mundungus Fletcher hadabandoned his post when he was supposed to be guarding Harry, which left the boy and his cousinvulnerable when they were attacked by Dementors. Figg also participated in Harry Potters trial, as a
witness in Harrys defence. It is unknown if Figg fought in the Battle of Hogwarts, though it is likely thatshe didnt fight, as she lacked magical powers.Harry had learned from Moody that several members of the First Order had been killed during the FirstWizarding War, including Fabian and Gideon Prewett, Edgar Bones and his family, MarleneMcKinnon and her family,Caradoc Dearborn, Benjy Fenwick and Dorcas Meadowes. InHarrys fourth year, Dumbledore told him that Alice and Frank Longbottom had been tortured toinsanity and were permanently incapacitated in St Mungos Hospital for Magical Maladies andInjuries, shortly after Voldemorts fall, by four Death Eaters who were attempting to discover theirMasters whereabouts. Harry was later confused when he heard about the arrest of OrdermemberSturgis Podmore, who had apparently been attempting to break into the Department ofMysteries in 1995, but eventually realised that Podmore had been imperiused. Harry also learnedabout the death of Emmeline Vance in the Daily Prophet, when she was killed around the same as themurder of Amelia Bones.Mundungus Fletcher was likely the member of the Order Harry liked least (barring, initially, SeverusSnape), as he was a criminal who callously pilfered many of Sirius inherited possessions very shortlyafter his death. Harry attempted to strangle Fletcher when he saw him hawking Black family heirloomsoutside of the ThreeBroomsticks Inn, in 1996, and was disgusted to learn that Fletcher hadabandoned Alastor Moody during the Battle over Little Whinging. When Harry realised that one ofthe items Mundungus had stolen from 12 Grimmauld Place had beenSalazar Slytherins Locket,he ordered Kreacher, the house-elf, to catch him. Kreacher did so, and it was with reluctance that Harrystopped the house-elf from beating Mundungus senseless, in order to learn that the locket had beentaken from Mundungus by DoloresUmbridge.Augusta Longbottom, the mother of Frank Longbottom, mother-in-law of Alice Longbottom,and grandmother ofNeville Longbottom, wasnt an original member of the Order, but she fought inboth Wizarding Wars. She thought highly of Harry and his friends, and was immensely proud of hergrandson. When Augusta arrived at the school to join in the final battle, she rushed off to find Neville,whom she was unsurprised to hear was off somewhere fighting Death Eaters.Andromeda and Ted Tonks, Nymphadora Tonks parents, also werent original members, but werecrucial in transferring Harry safely to the Burrow, after the Sacrificial protection was broken. Harryliked the cheery-looking Ted Tonks immediately, though he was initially startled by the appearance ofAndromeda, who at first glance greatly resembled her sister Bellatrix, but upon closer inspection, clearlyhad softer features, and wider, kinder eyes. In 1997, after the Battle over Little Whinging,Andromeda and Ted healed Harrys and Hagrids injuries, before they took a Portkey to the Burrow.Harry was saddened by the news of Ted Tonks death, and helped Andromeda raise hergrandson, Teddy Lupin, after Nymphadoras death.Hogwarts residents Edit "You’ll do no more murder at Hogwarts!"
—Professor Filius Flitwick to Severus Snape in 1998[src] Filius Flitwick, Harrys Charms Professor. Added by Madam Hooch Filius Flitwick, the Charms professor and Head ofHarry got along well with both ProfessorRavenclaw House, and Professor Pomona Sprout, the Herbologyprofessor and Head ofHufflepuff House, and received O.W.L.s in both of their subjects. Harry also witnessed both teachersrush to the aid of ProfessorMinerva McGonagall shortly before Severus Snapes "sacking," prior tothe start of the Battle of Hogwarts.Sybill Trelawney Edit Sybill Trelawney Added by KickAssJedi "I miss having you in my classes, Harry, she said soulfully, as they set off together. You were never much of a Seer, but you were a wonderful Object... Harry did not reply; he had loathed being the Object of Professor Trelawneys continual predictions of doom." —Harrys feelings for Trelawney[src]As Sybill Trelawney had a tendency to predict various grim deaths for Harry every Divination class,Harry was not especially fond of his Divinationprofessor. Though most of Trelawneys predictions werenonsensical, in 1996, Harry learned it was Trelawney who had made the prophecy about himandVoldemort, and another in 1994 regarding the return of Peter Pettigrew to the service ofVoldemort, though she was completely unaware of having done so.
Professor Trelawney: "I was saying that Saturn was surely in a position of power in the heavens at the moment of your birth...your dark hair...your mean stature...tragic losses so young in life...I think I am right in saying, my dear, that you were born in midwinter?" Harry: "No, I was born in July." — Harry and Trelawney during a Divination class[src]Though Harry wasnt a huge fan of the subject, in general, Harry liked the other Divinationprofessor, Firenze, a centaur who had saved Harrys life in 1991. During the Battle of Hogwarts, Harrysaw Trelawney spiking Crystal balls at the invading Death Eaters.Other residents EditGilderoy Lockhart was Harrys Defence Against the Dark Arts professor in Harrys second year.Lockhart was a very handsome and famous author, who claimed he had done great deeds, but had infact only taken credit for the deeds after erasing the memories of the actual doers: his only skill. Lockhartwas extremely vain and highly self-obsessed; he assigned all of his own, very expensive, books for hisclass. Lockhart continually pulled Harry into the limelight against his will, often implying that Harry hopedto be as famous as Lockhart, which caused Harry a great deal of embarrassment and irritation.When Ginny Weasley had been taken into the Chamber of Secrets, Lockhart boasted that heknew exactly how to enter the Chamber and defeat the monster within; though McGonagall onlychallenged him to do so in order to shut him up, Harry and Ron Weasley, who actually did know how toget into the Chamber, tried to tell him what they knew, only to find him packing his things and gettingready to flee. Lockhart attempted to erase Harry and Rons memories, but fortunately for everyone excepthim, Lockhart attempted to cast the Memory Charm with Rons broken wand, and the charm backfired.Harry, Ron, and Hermione Granger encountered him again, with absolutely no memories but stillusing his battered peacock feather quill, as a permanent resident of St Mungos Hospital forMagical Maladies and Injuries.Harry disliked Argus Filch the caretaker, and his cat, Mrs. Norris, as much as they seemed to dislikeall Hogwarts students, though Filch did eventually help younger students and the Slytherins leave theschool prior to the Battle of Hogwarts. Harry found himself at odds with Irma Pince, the librarian,when she very loudly expressed her displeasure at seeing the Half-Blood Princes marked up copyof Advanced Potion-Making, and he found it impossible to pay attention to Professor CuthbertBinnss very boring, droning History of Magic lectures. Nearly-Headless Nick. Added byDumbledorefan
Moaning Myrtle. Added by Patr0nus "...only few wizards choose to return as ghosts..." —Nearly-Headless Nick, to Harry Potter[src]Harry became friends with "Nearly-Headless" Nick, ghost of the Gryffindor house, in Harrys firstyear. Nick invited Harry to his death-day party, which Harry reluctantly attended, along with RonWeasley andHermione Granger, instead of the Halloween feast. AfterSirius Blacks deathin 1995, they had a discussion about death, and Nick told him that very few wizards choose to comeback as ghosts.Harry also met Moaning Myrtle at Nicks death-day party. Myrtle was an unpleasant ghost of a girlthat lived in the girls toilet. Harry learned in 1993 that Myrtle had been killed by Salazar SlytherinsBasilisk, which helped Harry find the location of the entrance to the Chamber of Secrets. She wasdisappointed when Harry survived his encounter with Tom Riddle in the Chamber of Secrets, sayingthat she would have shared her toilet with him if he had died. The last time Harry saw Myrtle was when hea cast Sectumsempra, not knowing what it did, and hitDraco Malfoy. Harry with Helena Ravenclaw in 1998 Added by Septima VectorHarry met the Grey Lady in 1998. He learned that, when she lived, she wasHelena Ravenclaw,and that she had been killed by the Bloody Baron, who had subsequently killed himself, horrified athaving killed the woman he loved. She hesitantly revealed to Harry that she had stolen her mothersDiadem and hidden it in an Albanian forest; she even more reluctantly admitted that Harry was not thefirst person she had told. Her admitting she had in fact divulged its whereabouts to a young TomRiddle led Harry to realise where Riddle must have hidden it, and he assured Helena that she wasneither the first nor the last to fall prey to Tom Riddles charms.Ministry of Magic Edit Dumbledore: "It was Fudges idea originally, you know. During his last days in office, when he was desperately trying to cling to his post, he sought a meeting with you, hoping that you would give him your support—" Harry: "After everything Fudge did last year? After Umbridge?"
— Harry and Dumbledore talking about Harrys meeting with Rufus Scrimgeour[src]Harry had a mixed relationship with the Ministry of Magic. In 1992, Harry had his first run-in with theMinistry afterDobby had smashed a pudding in his Aunt and Uncle’s house. Although the incident wasnot Harry’s fault, the Ministry believed that Harry had used magic illegally while under-age, and given himan official warning. "Aunt" Marge. Believing that this time he wouldA year later, Harry lost his temper and blew up hissurely be expelled from Hogwarts, Harry went on the run and boarded the Knight Bus, but raninto Cornelius Fudge, then Minister for Magic, who seemed strangely unconcerned by what Harry haddone. Furthermore, Fudge treated Harry like a friend, although he did not sign Harry’s letter permitting toallow him to visit Hogsmeade. The Ministry of Magic. Added by Seth CooperHowever, by 1995, the relationship between Fudge and Harry was not so rosy. Harry had witnessedVoldemort’s return to power, which he told both Dumbledore and Fudge. The latter stoutly refused tobelieve Harry, and branded Dumbledore and Harry as liars/nutters in a smear campaign. In thesummer of 1995, Harry performed a Patronus Charm to save Dudley Dursley and himself fromDementors, for which Harry was unreasonably threatened with expulsion from Hogwarts, tried by theentire Wizengamot. Though Harry was cleared of all charges, thanks to Dumbledores defenceand Amelia Boness impartiality, Fudge took his revenge by employing his undersecretary DoloresUmbridge as Defence Against the Dark Arts professor and High Inquisitor of Hogwarts.Umbridge sadisticallytortured Harry when he repeatedly contradicted the Ministry’s opinion thatVoldemort had not returned. In 1996, after Dumbledore’s Army was discovered, Fudge came toHogwarts to expel Harry, but Dumbledore claimed the D.A. had been formed on his orders. Though Harrywas allowed to remain at Hogwarts, Dumbledore was forced to go on the run after overpowering several Battle of the Department of Mysteries, Fudgeministry officials. Later that year, toward the end ofarrived at the Ministry in time to see Voldemort disapparate with Bellatrix Lestrange, and was forcedto acknowledge that Dumbledore and Harry had been telling the truth all along. As the Wizardingcommunity had lost all confidence in him, he was forced to resign as Minister for Magic.Fudges successor, Rufus Scrimgeour, did little to improve Harrys view of the Ministry. Scrimgeourasked Harry to essentially become the Ministrys mascot for the purpose of restoring public confidence,despite all they had done to Harry and the fact that Dolores Umbridge was still in their employ. Harryrefused, stating he couldnt pretend to approve of the ministrys methods, showing Scrimgeour the scars
on the back of his hand, and citing the fact that Scrimgeour was arresting innocent people like StanShunpike. In 1997, Voldemort and his Death Eaters took over the Ministry, and killed the Minister aftertorturing him in an attempt to ascertain Harry’s whereabouts. Although Harry did not like Scrimgeour, whohardly appeared to care at all about what actually happened to Harry or his friends, he was incrediblygrateful that the Ministers final act had been to protect him.After Lord Voldemort’s takeover of the Ministry, with an Imperiused Pius Thicknesse actingas Voldemorts puppet Minister for Magic, Harry’s relationship with the Ministry was worse than everbefore. They named Harry Potter "Undesirable Number One" and claimed he was wanted for questioningabout the death of Albus Dumbledore.In 1998, after Voldemorts death, the position of Minister of Magic went to Order of thePhoenix member and Harrys friend Kingsley Shacklebolt, who he later employed Harry asan Auror.Death Eaters and enemies EditDeath Eaters were dark wizards under the orders of Voldemort during both wizarding wars; knownDeath Eaters included Draco Malfoy, Bellatrix Lestrange, and Peter Pettigrew. Though not all ofHarrys enemies were Death Eaters, the ones who most persistently and ferociously pursued Harry andhis friends were part of Voldemorts inner circle. Quirinus Quirrell. Added by Scrimgeour "I met him when I travelled around the world. A foolish young man I was then, full of ridiculous ideas about good and evil. Lord Voldemort showed me how wrong I was...Since then, I serve him faithfully, although I have let him down many times." —Quirrell[src]The first of Voldemorts servants to try to murder Harry was his Defence Against the DarkArts professor, Quirinus Quirrell. Though not a Death Eater, he encountered Voldemort in the forestsof Albania, and was seduced into the Dark Lords service by promises of wealth and power. Harry foundout about Quirrells true loyalties at the end of his first year, in the seventh of the PhilosophersStone Chambers. This news also came with the discovery that Voldemort was actually sharing
Quirrells body, and the turban Quirrell wore was, in fact, hiding Voldemorts face on the back of Quirrellshead. When Quirrell attempted to grab Harry, he found he was unable to do so without experiencingunbearable pain, due to the power of Harrys mothers Sacrificial protection. Voldemort detachedhimself from his servant to escape the pain and fled before Albus Dumbledores arrival becauseDumbledore could have killed him, leaving Quirrell to die. Barty Crouch Jr., a fanatically loyal Death Eater. Added by Yeti222 Harry: "Youre mad!" Barty Crouch: "Mad, am I? Well see! Well see whos mad, now that the Dark Lord has returned, with me at his side! Hes back, Harry Potter, you did not conquer him-and now-I conquer you!" — Harry Potter and Barty Crouch Jr., after Voldemorts return[src]Harry first learned about the Death Eaters after the 1994 Quidditch World Cup Riot, where BartyCrouch Jr. raised the Dark Mark in the sky. At the end of Harrys fourth year, he realised that theman he thought was Alastor Moody was actually Barty Crouch Jr., disguised by way of polyjuicepotion. Crouch attempted to kill Harry, but Professors Dumbledore,McGonagall and Snape rushedinto Moodys office and stunned him. When Dumbledore forced Crouch to drink Veritaserum, he revealedhow he had escaped from Azkaban with the help his father and dying mother, and told Dumbledoreabout how Voldemort had helped him overpower his father, allowing Crouch to later confund theGobletof Fire to declare Harry a Triwizard Champion. Cornelius Fudge arrived at Hogwarts soon after withaDementor for a bodyguard, and the latter subsequently gave Crouch the Dementors Kiss. Lucius Malfoy. Added by Thai420Harry first saw Lucius Malfoy in 1992 at Borgin and Burkes, though they didnt officially meet untilLucius got into a fist fight with Arthur Weasley at Flourish and Blotts, over Malfoys many insultsaimed at the Weasley family. Though Harry didnt know it till much later, after a good deal of damage hadbeen done, Malfoy had used the scuffle as a pretext for handing Ginny Weasley a book that turned outto beTom Riddles Diary. Harry and Malfoy met again at the end of the same year, when Harry tricked
Malfoy into freeing his House-elf, Dobby; when Lucius threatened Harry in his anger at having lost hisservant, Dobby demonstrating the might of hisHouse-elf magic to protect Harry. They would eventuallymeet again in the Ministry of Magic, in 1995, after which Lucius was outed as an active Death Eaterand arrested. Following his failure at the Ministry, and Voldemorts discovery of the fact that Lucius hadallowed one of his Horcruxes to be destroyed, Voldemort punished him by giving his son the seeminglyimpossible task of assassinating Albus Dumbledore. When Harry and his friends escaped on Luciuswatch after the Skirmish at Malfoy Manor, in 1998, the Malfoys fell further out of Voldemorts favour.During theBattle of Hogwarts, Lucius and his wife both deserted the Death Eaters, placing greaterimportance in the safety of their son, and Narcissas crucial act of lying to Voldemort about Harrys deathinsured that the Malfoy family was not sent to Azkaban.Throughout the Second Wizarding War, Harry encountered a number of other DeathEaters: Antonin Dolohov, who murdered the Prewetts and Remus Lupin, and almost killed HermioneGranger during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries; Travers, who killed theMcKinnons; Augustus Rookwood, who was possibly responsible for the explosion that killed FredWeasley; Yaxley, who imprisoned innocent Muggle-borns with the Muggle-Born RegistrationCommission; Walden Macnair, who was violent and bloodthirsty, and almostkilled Buckbeak in 1993;Alecto and Amycus Carrow, who tortured the students of Hogwarts whenthey had been appointed Deputy Headmasters; Thorfinn Rowle, who indiscriminately cast KillingCurses all around him during the Battle of the Astronomy Tower and took part in the skirmish atthe Luchino Caffe, and Rodolphus and Rabastan Lestrange, who participated in the tortureof Alice and Frank Longbottom. Lucius Malfoy, Rookwood, Dolohov, MacNair, and the Lestranges(including Bellatrix), all took part in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, along with Mr.Crabbeand Mr. Goyle (fathers of Vincent Crabbe and Gregory Goyle), Mr.Nott, Jugson, Avery and Mulciber. Fenrir Greyback. Added by You-Know-WhoIn 1997, during the Battle of the Astronomy Tower, Harry got his first glimpse ofFenrirGreyback, who was known for craving human flesh even out of Werewolf form, as well for planninghis attacks by positioning himself near his intended victims prior to the full moon (typically the children ofhis employers enemies). Harry, Ron and Hermione were taken hostage by Greyback and a gangof Snatchers just before theSkirmish at Malfoy Manor, during which time Greyback expressed adisturbing interest in Hermione. Though he wasnt a Death Eater, and lacked the Dark Mark tattoo,Greyback was allowed to wear Death Eaters robes whenever Voldemort made use of him.
Igor Karkaroff. Added byNaraGannonHarry met Durmstrang Institutes Headmaster, Igor Karkaroff, in 1994, during the TriwizardTournament. Harry later saw Karkaroff in Dumbledores pensieve bearing witness against several ofhis fellow Death Eaters, in exchange for his own freedom. Karkaroff fled after Voldemorts resurrectionin 1995. Two years later, Harry learned that Karkaroffs corpse was found in a shack in the north ofBritain. Sirius Blacks younger brother, Regulus, who followed the familyHarry didnt initially think highly oftradition of zealous pure-blood supremacy for most of his life. However, Kreacher later revealed toHarry, Ron and Hermione that Regulus had likely been the first to deduce the existence ofVoldemorts Horcruxes, and subsequently attempted to find and destroy them. When he located thehiding place of Salazar Slytherins Locket, rather than force Kreacher to consume the Drink ofDespair as Voldemort had done, Regulus drank it himself after ordering Kreacher to take and destroythe the locket, resulting in Regulus death. In all likelihood, Harry came to appreciate Regulus bravery,and respect the level of compassion he had for beings that had long been ill-treated by wizarding kind.Children Edit Harry: "It wont be long, and youll be going too." Lily: "Two years, I want to go now!" — Harry Potter and his daughter.[src] Harry with his son, Albus Severus. Added by Pol 871Harry had three children with Ginny Weasley: James Sirius, Albus Severus, and Lily LunaPotter. The eldest, James, has an outgoing personality and was a troublemaker, much likehis grandfather and namesake, and liked to tease his brother Albus. Albus, on the other hand, was
quieter and more thoughtful. When he admitted to Harry that he was afraid of being sortedinto Slytherin, Harry told him that Albus and Severus were the names of two former headmasters ofHogwarts; one was a Slytherin, and "the bravest man he ever knew." He also informed his son thatthe Sorting Hat would listen to the wearers choice, and he knew that for a fact because it hadconsidered putting him into Slytherin; this was something Harry had not shared with any of his otherchildren. Albus also closely resembled Harry, having the same eyes, untidy hair, and glasses. Lily, theyoungest and only girl, was very like her mother. Harry and Lily were seen holding hands while walkinginto Kings Cross, much like Lilys mother and maternal grandfather, and Lily was jealous of herbrothers as they boarded the train for Hogwarts, exactly as Ginny had been in 1991. Harry comforted herby reminding her she would be joining them in two years.Harry said farewell to his sons, as Ron and Hermione Weasley said goodbye to theirdaughter Rose.Teddy Lupin Edit Remus Lupin: "Youll be godfather?" Harry: "M-me?" Remus Lupin: "You, yes of course - Dora quite agrees, no one better-" Harry: "I - yeah - blimey -" — Remus Lupin and Harry on Teddy Lupin.[src]Teddy Lupin was Harrys godson, and the son of Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks, two ofHarrys close friends. In 1998, Remus asked Harry to be Teddys godfather, and Harry accepted, withgreat happiness. After Remus and Tonks were killed in the Battle of Hogwarts, Harry helped Teddysgrandmother, Andromeda, raise him, and by 2017, Harry and Teddy were clearly very close. WhenHarrys children wanted Teddy to move in with the Potters, Harry mentioned that Teddy had been comingto their home for dinner four times a week, and that he practically lived with them already. The Potter kidswere also thrilled at the idea that Teddy, who was seen kissingVictoire Weasley, the daughterof Bill and Fleur, might officially become a part of their family.In 1998, as Harry was planning to break in to the Lestrange vault, he wondered if he was becomingas reckless as a godfather to Teddy as Sirius Black had been to him.Nieces and nephews EditHarry had many nieces and nephews through the Weasley family. The childrenof Bill and Fleur were Victoire,Dominique and Louis, and James announced that he hadseen Teddy Lupin kissing Victoire at Kings Cross Station, in 2017. The children of Percy and hiswife, Audrey, were Molly, who was named after her grandmother, and Lucy, and either Molly orboth of the girls were attending Hogwarts in the 2017-2018 school year, because Percy was at KingsCross on 1 September, 2017. The children of George and Angelina Johnson were Fred, who wasnamed after his late uncle, and Roxanne.
Harry was most likely closest to Ron and Hermiones children, Rose and Hugo, as they were the sameages asAlbus and Lily, respectively, and Albus was "relieved" to meet up with Rose at Kings Cross.Ron and Hermione were probably close to all of Harrys children, and James, Albus, and Lily are theirgodchildren.Etymology Edit Harry Potter in his dormitory with Hedwig. Added by ArthurCh8Harry is the Middle English form of the name Henry, derived from the Germanic name Heinrich, fromthe words heim, meaning "home," and ric, meaning "power, ruler." It has been a very popular name in theEnglish-speaking world for centuries. Harry can also be a diminutive form of the name Harold, from theOld English name Hereweald, meaning "leader of the army." It has been the name of five kings ofNorway, three kings of Denmark, and two kings of England. In an interview J. K. Rowling statedthat Harry had always been one of her favourite boys names and that if her daughter had been a sonshe would have named him Harry, although then she would have to have come up with a different namefor the books as it "would have been too cruel to name him after my own son." James is derived from the same Hebrew name as Jacob, meaning ―holds the heel‖ (in the Genesisnarrative, Jacob was born grasping Esau′s heel and later bought his birthright). The name came intoEnglish language from the French variation of the Late Latin name Iacomus, a dialect variant of Iacobus,from the New Testament Greek Ἰ άκωβος (Iakōbos), from Hebrew word ( בקעיYaʻaqov). James is Harrysmiddle name, James was the name of his father and is also the name of his first son.Potter is a very common surname of English origin. It traditionally refers to the occupation of makingpottery.Beatrix Potter was a well-known English childrens author. Potters Field is the name for aburial ground for the unknown or unclaimed dead, particularly soldiers and orphans; the Potter family hadmany members that fit that description. The Potter Box is a model for making ethical decisionsdeveloped at Harvard University. J. K. Rowlinghas also commented that she has liked the name sincechildhood, as a family that had lived near her carried this surname.
Behind the scenes Edit "There are quite a few real Harry Potters out there. So far I have heard of a newborn baby who actually has Harrys full name (Harry James Potter), a barrister in London, a grandfather who was very pleased that he had become cool in his grandchildrens eyes, a soldier who died in the second world war (I was sent a picture of his tombstone) and a clockmaker who worked in London in the last century." —J.K. Rowling[src] Harry Potter in deep thought. Added by JamesVI Harry is portrayed by British actor Daniel Radcliffe in the film adaptationsof Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, Chamber of Secrets,Prisoner of Azkaban, Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix, Half-Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and Part 2 and so is one of the 14 characters to appear in all 8 film adaptations. By the time Deathly Hallows: Part 2 was released, Radcliffe had played the role for ten years consecutively. Harry is right-handed. He tells this to Mr. Ollivander in Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone. He is also seen writing with this hand throughout the film series. Josh Herdman plays Harry when he is disguised as Gregory Goyle inChamber of Secrets, as does David OHara when he is disguised asAlbert Runcorn in Deathly Hallows: Part 1. The Saunders Triplets play Harry as an infant in Philosophers Stone and Toby Papworth plays Harry as an infant in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. In a deleted scene of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, when he is disguised as Albert Runcorn, Harry calls Arthur Weasley by his first name. This is the only time Harry does this. Daniel Radcliffe and Harry were both born in July — Harry on the 31st and Daniel on the 23rd. Harry the character has green eyes, but in the films he has blue eyes. This is due to the fact that Daniel Radcliffe cannot stand wearing contact lenses. Radcliffe also has brown hair, as opposed to
Harrys black hair, and also has a strong physical body, rather than the slim frame Harry is described as having. However Harry is only described as having an uncommonly slim frame in the earlier instalments, so it is possible that he bulked out a little into a lean frame as he matured. Harrys birthday of 31 July is also the birthday of Harry Potter author, J. K. Rowling, and actor Richard Griffiths who plays Harrys Uncle Vernon Dursley in the Harry Potter films. In the Mirror of Erised, Harry saw his family, a lot of people with untidy black hair, his own noses, mouths and knees. However, he also saw some people with almond-shaped green eyes, which could indicate that he saw his Muggle family as well, even though he did not see the Dursley family. All people were smiling at him, so there is a thought that all of his family, Wizards and Muggles, are proud of him. In the film version of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry is seen practising Lumos Maximaunder the covers in his bedroom, but Harry does not get a letter from the Improper Use of Magic Office even though he is under-age. In the book he is simply using a torch while writing his homework for History of Magic. While Harry repeatedly states Hermione is the best student in his year in all classes, he has beaten her in two of the three Defence Against the Dark Arts exams they had together, with Hermione only beating him in their first year exam. In addition, J.K. Rowling has said that Harry could have beat Hermione in a magical duel halfway through Prisoner of Azkaban.  Part of this can be put down to Professor Lupins way of teaching, as it seemed to help bring out Harrys own talent at the subject. It is probably more accurate to say that Hermione is the best student in every subject but DADA, in which Harry is strongest, hence in Harrys mind she is the best student overall. Rose and Hugo, have some of the same heritage of Harry. Harrys niece and nephew, A Muggle-born mother,Lily and Hermione, and a pure-blood father, James and Ron. This makes Rose, Hugo and Harry all half-bloods. When Harry is cleaning out his school trunk in 1997, he finds a "Support Cedric Diggory!" badge in there. Considering the badges were only created by Draco Malfoy to get a rise out of Harry in 1994, it seems out of place that Harry has it, although he may have it by accident, or out of respect for Cedric. He could also have kept one as a memento from the Tournament. Throughout the films, Harrys hair grows longer and longer (the longest point was in the Goblet of Fire) until it was cut for the Order of the Phoenix. It has since grown to about the same length as it was for the Prisoner of Azkaban. In the films, Harrys scar is off-centre on his forehead; this was apparently done at J. K. Rowlings request: because of the books artwork, many fans believe the scar is in the centre of his head. But it is never explicitly mentioned where the scar is located. On all the U.S. book covers (illustrations), the scar on Harrys forehead is located in the centre. The same is definitely true of the last two U.K. instalments; however, on early U.K. book covers, Harrys scar tends to appear
slightly off-centre. It is somewhat hard to tell on most of these covers, as Harrys face is only visible in profile. However, on the U.K. cover of Chamber of Secrets, Harrys scar is decidedly off-centre. It is perhaps of this book that Rowling was thinking. The Harry Potter Lego mini-figure.Added by Oiv8 The Marauders were said to have discovered more secret places than anyone else in the history of Hogwarts. This isnt necessarily true, as unlike Harry andTom Riddle, they didnt discover the Chamber of Secrets or the Room of Requirement. However, as they discovered an untold number of secret passages and hidden rooms, they did discovery more more numerous secrets than Riddle or Harry, just not the same ones. In Harry, A History, Rowling discussed how Steve Kloves suspected that something might happen between Harry and Hermione in Deathly Hallows. She replied: "I had always planned that Harrys true soul mate, which I stand by, is Ginny, and that Ron and Hermione have this combative but mutual attraction. They will always bicker, there will always be rough edges there, but they are pulled together, each has something the other needs. [Kloves] felt a certain pull between them at that point. And I think hes right. There are moments when [Harry and Hermione] touch, which are charged moments. One when she touches his hair as he sits on the hilltop reading about Dumbledore and Grindelwald, and [two] the moment when they walk out of the graveyard with their arms around each other. Now the fact is that Hermione shares moments with Harry that Ron will never be able to participate in. He walked out. She shared something very intense with Harry. So I think it could have gone that way." The only person Harry ever considered killing by use of curse was Sirius Black and possibly Bellatrix Lestrange, ironically to avenge Sirius. It is, however unclear if Harry knew how to cast the Avada Kedavracurse since Harry was not taught the Unforgivable Curses until his fourth year. Furthermore, when Harry found out that Peter Pettigrew was the one who had betrayed his parents to Voldemort, he did not want Sirius and Remus Lupin to kill Pettigrew in revenge. Even during the Battle of Hogwarts, during which Harry defeated Lord
Voldemort, Harry did not do so by use of any curse intended to do harm to his opponent, but rather he used his "trademark," Expelliarmus. Harry finished Voldemort by reflecting a curse Harry would never use on another, even his mortal enemy. This suggests the love, which is "the power the Dark Lord knows not..." makes it difficult for Harry to kill. Even during the Battle over Little Whinging, Harry illustrated his unwillingness to kill Death Eaters. During that battle the Death Eaters were masked at the time, he couldnt know who was a willing follower and who was a controlled drone. However in the example with Voldemort, Harry knew Voldemorts killing curse would backfire, so rather than use the same curse which would make him look somewhat bad, he instead decided to use the Disarming Charm to gain possession of the wand. Harry usually has the last line in every Harry Potter film. Though it could be debatable on whether he has the last line of the second film since the closed captions say that Dean said, "Yes!", so he may have had the last line. "Im not going home...not really..." (PS/SS) "Theres no Hogwarts without you, Hagrid." (CS) "Lumos. I solemnly swear that I am up to no good"/"Nox"." (POA) "Yeah. Every week." (GOF) "Something worth fighting for." (OOTP) "I never realised how beautiful this place was." (HBP) "I want to bury him [ Dobby ]... without magic." (DHPt1) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 is the only film in which Harry does not speak the final line. It is spoken by his son Albus: "Ready." Harry was Wizard of the Month on J. K. Rowlings website for the month of October 2007. Harry is the inspiration for the Wizard rock band, Harry and the Potters. The makers of the film X-Men: First Class used Harry Potter as their role model. Harry Potters former romantic relationship with Cho Chang is well known for being his first crush, first kiss and first ex-girlfriend in the Harry Potter series. Harry PotterAdded by Mr. Mortimer
Harry Potter and Ginny Weasleys romantic relationship is told in a different way in the films series from the novel versions of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: In the novel version of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry shares his first kiss with Ginny in front of Gryffindor students in theGryffindor Common Room after the Gryffindor Quidditch team won the Quidditch Cup. He also breaks it off with her at Dumbledores funeral. In the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry and Ginny go to the Room of Requirement together to hide Harrys copy of the Advanced Potion-Making book, which previously belong to the Half-Blood Prince, after he hurts Draco Malfoy. While there Ginny asked Harry to close his eyes while she goes and hides the Half-Blood Prince book so that he and other students cant find it, when she returned back to him, Ginny kisses Harry. Harry was very much delighted and surprised that he received a kiss fromher. It is implied that they are still dating at the end of the film. In the novel version of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Harry and Ginny kiss on Harrys seventeenth birthday in Ginnys bedroom at The Burrow, and Ron interrupts them when he opens the door. In the film version of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One, Harry was in the kitchen at theWeasley family home, on the day of the wedding of Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour. Ginny arrives into room, she asked him to fasten the zip of her bridesmaid dress. Harry and Ginny talked and shared a kiss, while they were kissing Ginnys brother George Weasley comes into the room and interrupts them. A running gag in the books is the messiness of Harrys hair. In the films, this is not mentioned except for a reference in the fourth film. Harry notices that Hagrid has combed his hair so he will look good for Olympe Maxime. When Harry says to him, "Hagrid, have you combed your hair?!" Hagrid states, "As a matter of fact, I have. You might wanna try the same thing now and again." Harry Potter is still the only wizard to this day that has had all three Unforgivable Curses cast on him and survived. Both Michael Corner and Harry have dated the same girls, but in a different order, Cho Chang and Ginny Weasley. Despite being a talented Quidditch player (and the team Seeker, considered the most important player on the team), Harry never played a full season (every minute of all three matches): In his first year, he was recuperating in the hospital wing after saving the Philosophers Stone, and thus missed the final match. In his second year, the final match of the season was cancelled due to the attack on Hermione andPenelope Clearwater.
In his third year, Harry came closest to playing a full season, but spent the last few seconds of the opening Gryffindor vs. Hufflepuff match unconscious after being attacked by Dementors. In his fourth year, the Quidditch Cup was cancelled due to the Triwizard Tournament. In his fifth year, Harry was banned by Dolores Umbridge after the opening Gryffindor vs. Slytherin match. In his sixth year, Harry was knocked unconscious partway through the second match of the season against Hufflepuff, and then held in detention for the final match against Ravenclaw. One of the reasons why J.K. Rowling had Harry survive is because she values those who rebuild after a war, modelling Harry on war veterans.  J.K. Rowling has said that because of the demands of his life, Harry has had less sexual experience than boys of his age might have had. J.K. Rowling has said that Harrys glasses are a clue to his vulnerability.  J.K. Rowling has said that the character of Wart from T. H. Whites The Sword in the Stone is "Harrys spiritual ancestor". Like his parents, Harry personally defied Voldemort three times before defeating him the fourth time: once in the Philosophers Stone Chambers, once at the cemetery in Little Hangleton, and once again during the Battle of the Department of Mysteries. However, there were four previous encounters if one counts the events of Harrys second year with Tom Riddles Diary, though that was a memory instead of the real Voldemort. Harry learns a new mode of transportation in every book. In his first year, he learns to travel by broomstick. In his second year, he travels by Floo Powder.

In his fifth year, he travels to the Ministry of Magic|Ministry by thestral. In his sixth year, he learns to Apparate. In the seventh book, he breaks into Gringotts and flies out on a dragon. The only autograph he ever gave out was to Colin Creevey.
